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 and family commitments, and perhaps even having a social life.
With over a decade’s experience of delivering part-time courses, we know our flexible approach is tried and tested and the perfect way to become a fully-qualified journalist while maintaining an income.
For that reason, in consultation with our alumni, we’ve built in some flexible study weeks around Saturday lessons.
At the start of the course we’ll give you a study guide which will have all your term dates. There will be a number of weeks where formal lessons won’t take place – instead you’ll be set work to complete in your own time at home.
You can do this at any point across the week, giving you a Saturday back to enjoy.
You’ll have approximately one flexible-study week a month, but we’ll try to organise these weeks to coincide with bank holidays for example, to help your life and study balance.
Our London courses have intakes in October and February. We also appreciate that sometimes it’s hard escaping from work on time, which is why our midweek sessions are flexible too. The same lessons will be repeated on Monday and Wednesday evenings – so you can attend which one suits you best, or attend both if a subject is challenging you.
We have one intake a year in Manchester and lessons are staged on Monday evenings.
The NCTJ-accredited 40-week ‘Earn While you Learn’ course commences in February and October (London) and October only (Manchester). Our October 2017 intakes commence on Saturday, October 7th and we are now accepting applications – click here to apply now.
