Journalists need to master a wide range of practical and editorial skills. In this section of the College of Journalism website, some of the BBC’s most experienced practitioners - from Huw Edwards to Rory Cellan-Jones - reveal how they use these in their daily work. A series of video and text reports provide practical advice in key areas such as how to write, report, interview, present, research stories, and get the most from social media.

Access to the BBC Academy's College of Journalism website is free to everyone in the UK and commercially available overseas. If you are a subscriber click here.
