Testimonial

Sian Elvin

"It wasn’t until I started the NCTJ that I realised the reputation of the Press Association spoke for itself, whether I was talking to other journalists about the course, listening to high-profile speakers who came in, or when I started applying for jobs.

"This, along with the strong teaching structure of the course which gives trainees an excellent chance of passing the NCTJ diploma at a gold standard within just 17 weeks, makes me recommend the London course without hesitation."
