Aspiring journalists to benefit from print

The Printing Charity has a firm goal of helping the education and welfare of the print sector, and its subsequent links with other industries, including journalism.

The charity has now joined forces with the National Council of Training of Journalists (NCTJ) as a funding partner for the Journalism Diversity Fund, to aid the increasing efforts to include everyone from all backgrounds in the industry.

The NCTJ started the fund in 2005, and has provided bursaries to students on NCTJ-accredited courses from socially and ethnically diverse backgrounds, worth over a million pounds.

We are delighted to be working with The Printing Charity to build the capacity of the Journalism Diversity Fund to help even more people from all walks of life become journalists

Neil Lovell, chief executive of The Printing Charity, comments: “Our involvement with the fund reinforces the charity’s long-term commitment to diversity and inclusion as part of our national welfare and education work helping beneficiaries across the UK. It also connects into our own Print Futures Awards, providing funding for training to help new talent enter or progress within the UK industry.”

Around 23 students each year are awarded the bursary, but they must show the determination and potential to do well in the industry. In total, £1,474,887 has been provided through 238 bursaries since the fund’s birth twelve years ago.

Chief executive of the NCTJ, Joanne Butcher, finishes: “We are delighted to be working with The Printing Charity to build the capacity of the Journalism Diversity Fund to help even more people from all walks of life become journalists. Partnerships with respected, prestigious and like-minded organisations to tackle issues of mutual interest mean we can all be much more effective than working on our own.”
