The new Travel News Frontline supplement is really excellent and one of the most novel and entertaining developments in travel trade journalism in recent years. It will be very much appreciated by young people training in the industry.

Testimonials from fellow alumni on the National Council for the Training of Journalists courses, under which Belinda qualified.

It gave me the perfect skill-base for a career in journalism – from basic, yet essential, stuff like a high shorthand speed to knowledge of media law which, given the number of times I’ve been sued, came in particularly handy.

Piers Morgan, editor and broadcaster

One of the first elements of our course involved a father giving a simulated press conference, lamenting the fact that his daughter had run off with a ‘terrorist’. I duly wrote it up. Not only had I defamed the new boyfriend but the father had also said ‘guitarist’, not ‘terrorist’ …lesson learned.
