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.
Finding stories is a key skill editors want from any journalist.
It does not matter if you are working for a weekly newspaper to a high-fashion glossy magazine, journalism is all about contacts and finding the exclusive.
From the first day students at Brighton Journalist Works are encouraged to go out and find stories to impress future employers and fill their NCTJ portfolio.
As Brighton and Hove buzzes with events all year round it is not too difficult for students to hit the ground running when it comes to bulking out their portfolios.
Brighton Digital Festival events throughout September are a great way to meet the cityâ€™s techy and arts crowd.
One of the highlights is the Mini Maker Faire with stands and exhibits from across the area and beyond.
Future motoring journalists have the Ace CafĂ© Reunion Â to look forward to on September 11, when the seafront is chock-a-block with motorbikes, both normal and custom builds.
Thereâ€™s more for motoring fans in October with Brighton Breeze (VW split screen campers) on October 2-4.
The London to Brighton Land Rover run on October 4 and the BrightonA custom bikes and stunt show on October 11.
On November 1, vintage cars rumble their way slowly into the city for the 119th London to Brighton run.
Aspiring sports journos can work the crowds as the Rugby World Cup comes to Brighton in September, with Japan, South Africa, Samoa and USA playing at the Community Stadium.
Madeira Drive hosts the fan zone, so expect colour and buzz in the city centre.
Wannabe fashion journalists will definitely want to cover events at Brighton Fashion Week, October 15-18.
Brighton Color Run (sic) is another great opportunity to find human interest stories.
Its on October 10, in Madeira Drive. Lots of running and colourful powders thrown all over the place.
The biggest event of the season comes towards the end of the course.
Lewes bonfire celebrations are huge and not for the easily offended.
Last year effigies of Alex Salmond and Vladimir Putin caused outrage in the national and international press.
In Sussex people just shrugged their shoulders and said â€śso what, itâ€™s Lewesâ€ť.
As Piers Morgan put it: â€śDon’t take this Lewes bonfire thing too personally @AlexSalmond – they burned me too..â€ť
