“I have watched the BJTC develop and grow into a highly effective, efficient and credible organisation. I have welcomed the new energy and commitment to high quality journalism education which the organisation has and I have seen, first-hand, the benefit to students that the BJTC brings through work placements, industry connections, and initiatives. I believe the continued success of the BJTC relies on its ability to bring together, in partnership, educators and industry representatives."
