Private sector journalism courses outshine universities in NCTJ pass-rate league table

The National Council for the Training of Journalists has published its annual figures revealing the pass rates for various training centres.

The below table shows the proportion of students who passed all the course segments (news writing, law, public affairs etc.) and also obtained 100 words per minute in shorthand.

Courses run by private sector training providers occupy the top six places on the list, outshining the various university courses which offer NCTJ qualifications in addition to academic ones. Courses run by News Associates have the top four places on the table.

According to the NCTJ data, courses at 18 institutions (at the bottom of this table) failed to get any students to what the NCTJ describes as its "gold standard" (A-C passes in all areas and 100 words per minute shorthand).
