Are editors looking for new hires from specific accredited courses or does a young journalist's portfolio now come first?

This week's guests are:
  • Dr Lily Canter, journalist and lecturer, Sheffield Hallam University
  • Loraine Davies, director of careers, Professional Publishers Association
  • Jon Godel, chief executive, Broadcast Journalism Training Council
