A great tradition of training

Press Association Training has a proud history of training many of the UK's leading journalists. Our  NCTJ course has been around since 1969.

Our magazine journalism course has a 30-year record of developing the very best journalists in the business.

The sports course is much younger, but has already made its mark as the place to do sports journalism.

The Press Association is the national news agency of the UK and Ireland and since 1868 has been providing a continuous stream of news to our clients, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

Now we have three distinct foundation training routes into the industry; news, sport and magazines. As well as that, we provide a huge range of bespoke and short courses to media companies all over the world. www.pressassociation.com/training/

With the strength of the PA Group behind it, its great links to the industry and vast knowledge of all sectors of the media, there is no better place to learn your craft.

"Doing the course was the best decision I ever made. I'm now lucky enough to have my dream job as a multimedia reporter on PA's London graduate scheme. I'm so proud of what my friends and I achieved during the course and immensely grateful to the course tutors for their encouragement, which continues even now.

Would I do it again? In a heartbeat."
