Part-time multimedia journalism diploma – News Associates (remote)

Our remote part-time course gives you the opportunity to join our flexible and award-winning NCTJ journalism training without the need to travel.

We understand your studies have to fit in around demanding work and family commitments.

Our remote part-time course will make training with us more flexible than ever before, opening our courses up to aspiring journalists from the ease of their own home.

Trainees on this course will study eight modules – enough credits to gain the all-important Level 5 NCTJ Diploma in Journalism – and you will be taught by our very experienced journalism tutors.

Tutors will use teaching techniques developed during the lockdown of 2020 – when all courses were delivered via Zoom – which led to News Associates winning the Innovation of the Year 2020 award at the NCTJ’s Awards for Excellence.

Remote trainees will be offered the same high calibre of guest speakers from the industry and will be invited to our annual journalism conference JournoFest.

Lessons will take place on Zoom every Tuesday and every other Thursday evening, totalling nine hours a fortnight (classes are 6:30pm-9:30pm, with a break).

News Associates is excited to offer modules in data journalism and PR and communications for journalists. These two modules are only available on our remote part-time course, ideal for anyone with an interest in long-form data journalism or wider careers in communications and PR.

NCTJ elective modules offered:

  • Journalism for a digital audience
  • Public affairs for journalists
  • Data journalism
  • PR and communications for journalists
