Press Association Training has a proud history of training many of the UK's leading journalists. Our NCTJ course has been around since 1969.
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.
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.
"Without PA Training I wouldn't have my job. Employers value the name 'PA' and it certainly opens doors. The teachers are supportive and have incredible contacts. They encourage you to aim high and help you get into national newsrooms - on my course people ended up on training schemes at the BBC, the Mirror and the Daily Mail."
