Students on City College Brighton and Hove’s NCTJ multimedia one year and fast track courses have had a four page supplement ‘Latest Word’ published in popular Brighton publication Latest 7. The weekly magazine is read by over 100,000 people every week and is available at over 1,000 outlets across the South. The project involved the students getting hands-on experience of writing all the copy for the supplement as well as working alongside staff in the Latest 7 production and advertising departments. Student Richard Jansen says:
“Journalism’s such a competitive industry to get into these days that getting hands-on experience is incredibly valuable and seeing the project come together from our initial ideas to the finished supplement was very satisfying.”
Latest 7’s Production Director Fiona McTernan adds:
“It was nice for us to work through the process with them from start to finish to give them a flavour of what it was like working on a real magazine. I think they’ve done a really good job and when they look back there will be a lot they can learn from it and to me that’s what made this much a worthwhile project.”
