Brighton Journalist Works have trained hundreds of journalists to gain their NCTJ qualifications and become working journalists.
Their success stories, (click here to view) speak volumes for our tutors and our industry experience.
Training here is unique, as it's in the offices of Brighton's daily newspaper - The Argus.
Newsquest Media (Publishers of The Argus) take a keen interest in the development of talented journalists and so hosting training is a perfect solution.
It is her first week of work experience while she searches for her first job in journalism.
After three days working for the newspaper Angelika is enjoying herself.
She said: “It’s been fantastic. I’ve been thrown in at the deep end in the best possible way.
“Everyone is really helpful in such a way they are looking for you to work on your own inclination and I know this is really useful for the future.
“It is all team work but it is also about you carrying your own weight.”
With three bylines in as many days the hard work has paid off.
“It’s been three days and I’ve made more contacts, spoken to more people and made more phone calls than I have ever done in my life,” she said.
“My love for the telephone has grown back as it’s enormously useful when you’re on a deadline.”
Seeing journalists apply the knowledge Angelika learned on the NCTJ course has also filled her with glee.
“I’m with people who understand,” she exclaimed.
“I wouldn’t be able to do this job without PA and definitely not without media law, even though I’ve been told we have lawyers to consult.
“Reporting taught me so much. Shorthand is invaluable during all the phone interviews.
“The only face-to-face interview I’ve had was a walk in.”
