For those second year students who think they might take my elective module, JN509 Reporting Conflict, as I mentioned today the assessment has changed to bring it into line with other electives. The exact assessment requirements are as follows.
These are the classes that David and I are running, for those who think they want to take the optional NCTJ Broadcast module. I'll talk more about it in coming classes for the Year 2 and MA students.

10 MAR FEEDBACK FOR MOCK REGULATION EXAM Main UG newsroom 1500 TO 1600
Conference is at 0930. Come smartly dressed, as if to interview Theresa May.
Come with ideas for stories you can do on the day. If you can make any calls before, that would be great.
Lee says he will be encouraging you to think about local stories during Reporting in the coming days.
Finally, come down to the small newsroom on the first floor, G1-03 at 1205 on Wednesday after History of Journalism and Laura will run through some of the production things you'll need to remember on the day.
There's an NCTJ exam on Monday morning, 12 December, so the year one conference is cancelled.
