The NCTJ has over 60 years’ experience teaching gold standard training to journalists. However, we not only train journalists, but anyone who needs journalistic skills.
Whether it’s an individual who wants to add an extra skill to their personal portfolio, or a corporate group who wants to boost communication and writing, the journalistic skills our course delegates learn can be successfully applied in any sector. Our courses range across all mediums: print, online, audio, video and data. We also teach PR and communications skills.
If you need to sharpen your writing, media law, editing, proofreading or press releases, you can tap into our expert knowledge.
How our training is delivered
Our bespoke training courses are tailored to suit individual needs and are delivered in the most appropriate form for you.
Our programme of one day courses has been developed to provide the key skills required in the communications and media industry in a convenient and cost-effective package.
When we train those who work with journalists, we provide insight into how the media works, what reporters are looking for in a story, and how media-relations professionals can fulfil journalists' requirements while ensuring they get their message across effectively.
We can help those working within public relations understand what makes a newsworthy story and demonstrate how to write a professional press release that gets noticed.
When dealing with those who need to write and edit for work, we drill down to discover which basic skills are needed. At the end of a short course, our delegates have built the confidence to become fluent and persuasive communicators.
