Click here to join them in September 2017.

It’s been a busy start to the year here at News Associates HQ.

We’ve said goodbye and bon voyage to our September fast-track crew…

But welcomed a whole new bunch of trainees with open arms.


And they really #LoveShorthand


Really, really #LoveShorthand

We’ve covered everything from the Australian Open…

To Random Acts of Kindness Day.

We dominated the NCTJ diploma exam awards

And the young sports writer category of the British Sports Journalism Awards shortlist.


We’ve seen #TeamNA write the headlines…

And present the news.

We topped the league tables…


We’ve been to Loughborough…

And Lancaster…



And Cambridge.


We’ve had speakers…

And held workshops.

We’ve learnt people don’t buy newspapers anymore…


Because they’re consuming their news on social media.

And we’ve got so much more to look forward to in 2017.

We’ve got loads more workshops lined up

And we’re recruiting for our sports journalism, part-time and fast-track courses in London and Manchester.
