University lecturer named among the best

A lecturer at the University of Gloucestershire has been recognised among the most inspiring tutors and trainers for the next generation of journalists.

Paul Wiltshire is one of 17 journalism trainers on the Public Interest News List compiled by Behind Local News from nominations by colleagues and past and former students.

His nomination reads: "Journalism will only have passionate journalists if they are taught by passionate people - and few people believe so steadfastly in local journalism than Paul Wiltshire.

"His students always speak highly of him and his influence is visible in their work when they do work experience or gets jobs in local news.

"He's also a much-needed celebrator of local journalism on social media which can be a dark place for journalism at times."

The list has been published as part of Journalism Matters with ITV West Country reporter Ken Goodwin also honoured on a list of journalists.
