More about Jayne

Jayne Garfitt graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a distinction in MA Newspaper Journalism in 2010.

By the time she graduated she was already employed at the Nottingham Post. After spending her first year on the education team she has now moved on to the crime team.

She also won the NTU / Stoke Sentinel Newspaper Journalism Student of the Year Award and was named Student Feature of the Year in the NCTJ Awards for Excellence in Journalism 2010.

In the first year of working at the Post she was shortlisted as Newcomer of the Year in the Midland Media Awards.

Jayne said: "The MA Newspaper Journalism gave me a really good grounding to start a career in journalism. Starting at the Post so soon after completing the course was nerve-wracking, especially getting sent out within the first two hours to interview someone who had just been bereaved. But the practical experience I'd gained at NTU meant I was more than ready for reporting in the 'real world' and two weeks later I had my first front page lead story."
