Our unique approach to part-time training means you don’t have to put everything on hold to complete the essential NCTJ qualification. We understand your studies have to fit in around demanding work, earning an income, family commitments, and perhaps even having a social life.
Our flexible approach makes this possible, with lessons on one weekday evening and all day on Saturdays.
As well as timetabled lessons, we will ensure we equip you with the experience, skills, and impressive portfolio to walk into any journalism job.

I look back on my time at News Associates so fondly. The tutors really ignited my love of journalism and made me feel like a career in national newspapers and magazines was within reach. They go above and beyond to help you hone your skills and instil you with confidence, which is just invaluable. I miss it! But I use so much of what I learned at NA every day, so it's never far away.Meena Alexander, Stylist
