Course Studied: NCTJ Postgraduate Journalism Diploma (Fast-track)
From: The Daily Telegraph, News Reporter
If I’m honest, I picked Cornwall College so I could surf every day after lectures. However, as the course progressed, I discovered its strengths were more than just the location. I found Mark Benattar to be a savvy mentor with heaps of useful anecdotes and hard news experience, while the thoroughness of the shorthand, law and writing modules gave me an edge over my peers when I took my first reporter’s job. The facilities and equipment were also top notch. In all, I recall my brief stint there as one of the happiest and formative of my journalistic career, both in and out of the water.
