The course went beyond my expectations as it covered many different types of copywriting and also included a bit about web writing and PR. Cleland Thom was the best tutor I’ve ever had through distance learning.
Tiffany Shand: copywriting course
The course was excellent, and exceeded my expectations. I am now brimming with ideas for my blog. CTJT really do make you feel like you’re the only student they have. I enjoyed the course so much I’ve signed up for two more courses!
Beverley Duddridge: fashion blogging course
Starting my own blog was a definite high moment in my career so far. It was selected by RCA to promote Beyoncé's new album! I exclusively released tracks and quotes from Beyoncé until her new album '4' was released.
Natasha Ferguson: music blogging course
I really enjoyed the quick responses to the work that I sent in. I tried another distance learning course before this one, but being in South Korea meant it took a long time to send and receive work. I’m even thinking about taking another course!
Daniel Deacon: proofreading & editing course
I can only speak in the highest terms about CTJT. I now work in the Barclays Premier League for Sunderland AFC. The skills learned were crucial. The course is a fine addition to anyone's CV and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
