"I'm six months into my first journalism job and I struggle to think of anything the Newcastle PA course failed to prepare me for.
"Everything we learnt was made to fit effortlessly in to 17 weeks. It was impressively comprehensive - leaving me confident in doing everything from court reporting to play reviews - but not remotely rushed."
