“I always wanted to write but when I left school I was unsure about committing to a journalism course or 2/3 year degree. I was delighted at the time to see a 1 year “Journalism course” advertised in WCFE, which explored all aspects of writing from creative to technical to journalism, even a module where we could take a stab at a novel! As well as the more practical typing and shorthand. I loved the course, the tutors and my time at WCFE and it gave me the confidence to continue onto other media courses. I’m back there at the moment – I’m doing an evening course!”

“I would recommend the Journalism and Photography Course as it gave me the confidence to be able to write, communicate, photograph and to learn all the technical skills that go into being a Journalist. I am now going into a two year radio course in Ballyfermot College of Further Education as that is the career path I want to go down. I write a mainly sports blog at http://minutebyminute1.blogspot.ie/ and I now also do a podcast with another student from the Journalism course, Anthony Power, which covers local and national issues along with interviews and sports debate. That can be located at http://betweentheline4.podomatic.com/. I hope everyone that is doing the course gets the benefits from it like I did.”
