A new programme to develop the next generation of editorial leaders has been set up by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).
The training is targeted at early-career editorial managers and seeks to “empower” them withl “skills, knowledge and expertise to succeed in a rapidly-changing, fast-paced media landscape.”
“We are delighted to be launching our innovative leadership programme which has been created by journalists for journalists,” said Laura Adams, Head of the Journalism Skills Academy (JSA).
“We are aware that the editorial environment often presents unique challenges to managers and we want to reflect that in this flexible training scheme.
“We hope it will support and empower managers to thrive while developing the next generation of editorial leaders.”
Starting in June, it will feature a series of masterclasses and “lunch and learns” from how to manage change in the newsroom to hybrid and WFH patterns.
Later this year, it will also launch its first leadership qualification to create a quality standard for editorial management across the industry.
