Students from the Certificate of HE in Journalism have been presented with their industry and university awards from leading journalists in the region.
Elin Gwilym, BBC Wales news editor for at Bangor and Barrie Jones, editorial director at NWN Media presented the 2012-13 students with their Glyndŵr University and National Council for the Training of Journalists’ certificates.
Both praised the programme for giving students invaluable work experience in an embedded newsroom placement alongside their university and NCTJ studies.
Course leader, Janet Jones, paid tribute to the students’ standard of work and their commitment to the programme. She said that students achieved a 100% exam success in their NCTJ news portfolios, law, public affairs and video journalism exams.
Students from last year’s course are now working for NWN Media, the Shropshire Star, Wrexham.com and in public relations.
