Joanne Butcher, chief executive of the NCTJ, says the partnership has become important for the organisation

Since 2020, The Printing Charity has been a funding partner of the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) initiative.

The JDF is a bursary fund established to improve diversity in the newsroom by supporting students from under-represented groups to undertake an NCTJ diploma course.

Bursaries are used to help cover course fees and other expenses, while working journalists also mentor recipients during their studies.

Neil Lovell, chief executive of The Printing Charity and a member of the fund’s interviewing panel, says: “The JDF continues to have a positive impact, which is exactly what we look for when partnering with an organisation. A more diverse newsroom is essential to ensure that it is representative of society at large.”

Joanne Butcher, chief executive of the NCTJ, adds: “Our partnership with The Printing Charity has become so important to the NCTJ because we share the same passion for helping people from all walks of life to start and develop their careers.

“We really appreciate The Printing Charity’s backing for the JDF and are thrilled to be working together to make a difference to people’s lives.”
