PA 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.

PA Media 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, one or two days, to companies all over the world. https://pa.media/training/

With the strength of the PA Media 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.

Testimonial

Alicia Watts

'I'd never be where I am today without the PA course, it has opened so many doors for me. The staff are well trained and are all very encouraging. 

'All the hard work pays off in the end, I couldn't recommend it more. I work on video at the MailOnline but also present Facebook live for Daily Mail's page, and although we only did 1 week of video on the course, I still believe it prepared me for my current role. 

'It has changed my life; I have made lifelong friends and I know I'll always have a rewarding and successful career.'
