From the horse’s mouth – Journalism testimonials

You can read testimonials about the Multi-Platform Journalism programme from our industry partners and graduates here.

Here’s the latest one from Cleethorpes Chronicle Editor, Nigel Lowther. He employed student Sam Blake, while she was she in the second year of her journalism degree and she has now graduated.

“I’m pleased to write a few words about Samantha Blake, who has just completed her journalism degree at Grimsby Institute.

Somehow, she has also managed to juggle a full-time role at the Cleethorpes Chronicle, which has, hopefully, complimented what she has been learning on the course.

Sam is a pleasure to manage and a vital part of a small team. Sam is, actually, our only full-time permanent employee in the editorial team. Those who work with her are experienced, part-time staff.

She has a huge amount of responsibility. She has generated news stories off her own back – an important feature of the job – and is hard working and incredibly reliable.

With the college course and jobs during the evening and at the weekend, she has had to be very organised in her time management and flexible.

Sam’s very much a public face of the Chronicle, representing us with great professionalism in the local community. The course has been important to her development and proved most beneficial.”
