The UK National Council for the Training of Journalists plans to help teach journalists on ethics, the Guardian’s Roy Greenslade reported.

The council said in a June 28 submission to the UK Leveson Inquiry into press standards and practices that “quality training and robust qualifications play an important part in ensuring responsible, professional journalism and can influence the culture of our newsrooms.”

Further the council said it “can deliver journalists with sound ethical training to the newsroom but we are very conscious that ethical behaviour can be shaped by the prevailing newsroom culture and by editorial decision making.”

As such, the council wrote that it is “developing courses” on this.
