Oct
24

Final standings for the Shorthand Champions League groups are shown below. Qualifiers for the knockout stages are shown with a Q next to their names.

Katie Palmer is the bookies' hot favourite for the crown following her 100% error-free performances so far, but Alex Norman, Jackie Gordon and Lauren Meechan are clear contenders - with just 2, 3 and 4 errors respectively. As group winners they will be seeded to avoid each other in the Round of 16.

Shorthand Champions League group tables - week 2

Oct
17

Standings for the seven Shorthand Champions League groups are shown below as we reach the half-way stage.

At the end of the group stage, the top two from each group will automatically qualify for the knockout stages, and there are a further two places for the best third-place finishers - so it's still all to play for.

Group G has so far proved not to be the Group of Death but the Group of Dearth - with not a single point registered by any of its players.

Meanwhile Katie Palmer and Alex Norman remain 100% error-free from both of their matches.

NCTJ reps needed

Oct
10

Our professional accreditation with the National Council for the Training of Journalists is a cornerstone of the centre. And it's important that our students have an opportunity to have their say with the NCTJ.

So we need a student representative from both the MA programme and the BA programme to make sure our students' views are heard. The duties are not onerous, and there are good opportunities to meet reps from other accredited centres as well as senior industry professionals at student council meetings.

When we set up the Centre for Journalism just a few short years ago, our ambitions for our students were simple and straightforward:

1. that they would learn professional skills from top CfJ practitioners;
2. that they would get great jobs throughout the industry;
3. that one of them would appear in a national newspaper spread wearing only his pants.
