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.
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.
"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."
