Proofreading and editing course - (Level 4 Diploma)
by Carol - February 2015

I have completed the proofreading and editing course which was excellent. I received my diploma of which I am really proud. The course was very in depth but easy to understand. My tutor was very helpful and always there if I needed some advice. When I asked questions which I thought maybe were a bit silly I was always made to feel good about myself. The course has certainly boosted my confidence and I look forward to use this course to further my career.

News reporting diploma
by Ian - February 2015

Cleland Thom knows how to provide the sort of training and guidance that has real value to a working media professional. I am a former editor and news editor of daily newspapers (and their websites) and have often looked to Clel to provide training for myself and my newsroom colleagues. He has a knack for making learning interesting and relevant. As well as delivering first class tuition Clel has often demonstrated his ability to apply his considerable knowledge to real-world problems by providing crucial pre-publication advice. In short, Clel has the skill, experience and contacts to really help you succeed.

Freelance journalism diploma
by kesia - October 2014

My name is Kesia Qulu I have been studying broadcast journalism with ctj,i just finished my final exams,past :) and qualified. It's rather hard to know where to begin nor end when the journey was so hard academically yet sweet in relationship. The course is exreamly intense and demanding!but the team at ctjt makes all so beutiful. Dedication and efficiency is their middle name.I bless the day I chose this school. Big up to you guys,keep up the good work. NB: Mr Cleland Thom,'you're the best principal in the hole wide world.'Thank you for the scholarship and a second chance in life.God bless you.

Excellent Copywriting Course
5 5
Hotcourses
by Tiffany - August 2014

I wanted to learn about copywriting and different aspects of writing to improve my skills in the hopes of becoming a freelance writer. The course went beyond my expectations as it covered many different types of copywriting and also included a bit about web writing and PR. Cleland was the best tutor I've ever had through distance learning; I have had some bad experiences in the past where tutors didn't bother to help. But Cleland was very attentive and always helped me with any queries I had. Course content was varied and covered a lot of different topics. It was good to learn about so many different aspects of copywriting. I have learnt so much from this course and feel that it has greatly improved my writing skills and given me a good starting point to become a copywriter.

Better writing course
by Polyxeni - October 2013

I decided to take this course because I wanted to develop a skill set to show potential employers. It was well structured and offered a fantastic range of modules compared to other colleges. I completed my course within 15 months with a distinction grade. I was able to work at my own pace and fit my studies to my lifestyle. The administration department has a thorough understanding of distance learning and can provide excellent career guidance. Whenever I emailed a CMP expert with questions regarding the course, I heard back straight away! My tutor, Cleland Thom, marked my assignments and also advised me on how to improve and apply my copy in the 'real world' work. My course content was challenging but also rewarding. I was constantly being pushed to work harder and take on more things. It helped me write interesting blogs and web copy, effective letters and emails, authoritative reports and much more with the reader in mind. I would also like to mention that I met with people from all around the world! The impact of the new cultures made my thinking process more dynamic and enhanced my social skills. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to get good results: in business, study, and their personal lives.
