One day courses

Our intimate understanding of how the media works means that we have a unique take on training.

We are the foremost training organisation for journalists in the UK, and are recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual), Qualification Wales and CCEA Northern Ireland as a professional awarding body.

Many throughout the print and broadcast media have passed our examinations. We have applied this experience to the development of our portfolio of short training courses.

These courses reflect media convergence by offering training in the full range of print, broadcasting and online skills.
