The National Council for the Training of Journalists is continuing its expansion into broadcasting.
Its proposed new training structure, as well as core skills assessments for journalists, contains specialist options for radio and TV journalism.
The NCTJ says of broadcasting: "Many journalists have first honed their skills in print or online before moving to the broadcast sector. For many journalists working in broadcast news, NCTJ qualifications were vital in gaining employment in broadcasting journalism.
"If you want to learn the additional skills to be a broadcast, look for NCTJ-accredited courses which include broadcast journalism."
Traditionally the body that has overseen broadcasting journalism training and accredited courses is the Broadcasting Journalism Training Council.
