"Journalist Works then sorted me out with a work experience stint at The Argus. The News Editor told me he liked my work and offered me a job. I remember he joked "they taught you well upstairs" and I gladly accepted the job. Studying for the NCTJ at Journalist Works not only saved me a thousands of pounds in tuition fees, but also a hard slog at University too."
