    Student testimonials

    I now work for Barcelona Connect Magazine and am European fashion editor for Men Style Fashion. Pretty much all of this was from my diploma though CTJT, and my hard work and determination. The course gave me an excellent grounding for me to build upon.

    Charles McDonald: 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 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.

    Stuart Vose: NCTJ sports diploma

    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!
