Former IRN Editor Jon Godel joins BJTC
Jon Godel is to lead the expansion at the Broadcast Journalism Training Council.
In recent times the body has seen expansion as more universities and colleges seek the BJTC industry-backed accreditation badge that ensures students qualify ready to work in journalism. There are now more than 60 BJTC courses on offer to those seeking accredited training.
Jon Godel said: “The BJTC provides a crucial link between industry and trainers. Our media partners play a key role and are highly active in ensuring the best training is being delivered. This has never been more important to students who want a real chance of getting a job at the end of their course.”
Current BJTC Secretary Martyn Hurd added: “Having worked with Jon Godel for many years, I know the BJTC has made an excellent decision and chosen the right person to take the organisation to new heights.”
