Cardiff Centre for Journalism to mark 40 years of journalism training
Thursday, June 17, 2010
The Cardiff Centre for Journalism is inviting its alumni to the Tomorrow’s Journalists conference this October to mark its fortieth year as one of the UK’s leading journalism schools.
The conference will look to the future and what the subsequent four decades may bring for the next generation of trainee journalists.
Tomorrow’s Journalists will consider the skills and values necessary to ensure quality journalism continues to make a vital contribution to the UK’s democratic and cultural life and what that means for the next generation of journalists in a converged, multi-platform world.
Speakers at the sessions – many of whom studied at Cardiff and others who have helped teach and train students will include Mark Byford (Deputy Director-General, BBC), Simon Lewis (Former Director of Communications at No 10), Ron Jones (Chairman, Tinopolis) and Alan Edmunds (Publishing Director, Media Wales).
All alumni are invited to attend, discuss, debate the topics, meet old friends and participate in the shaping of tomorrow’s journalist. For costs and booking details please see the conference site.
The Centre for Journalism, part of Cardiff University School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, will host the conference on October 15th in Bute Building, Cathays Park, Cardiff.
