Journalism trainees studying with PA Training

PA Training is part of PA Media Group, formerly known as the Press Association. As the national news agency for the UK and Ireland, PA Media supplies journalism to newsrooms around the world. We have also trained some of the UK's leading journalists through our NCTJ Diploma in Journalism.

We offer aspiring journalists three entry routes into industry: news reporting, sport and magazine journalism.

Our NCTJ courses are widely regarded as among the best multimedia journalism courses in the UK. 

What makes our courses special is our understanding of how real newsrooms work and what editors are really looking for, and the experienced journalists who will share their skills and knowledge with you. It's also the fantastic success our trainees have after completing the Diploma — you'll find them working for top websites, broadcasters and publishers. Editors like our approach which is very different to life in a university, and you'll finish the course with all the skills you need to succeed.

We are among the top providers when it comes to the results tables published by the NCTJ and our record of finding jobs for our graduates is second to none. Right from day one, our trainees are exposed to the real world of newspaper and website publishing. If you want a career as a multimedia reporter, there is no better starting point than our London course. For full details on each of the courses, see News NCTJ, Magazines or Sport NCTJ
