Tailor-Made for Journalism Training
Brighton Journalist Works is an independent journalism training company. Our courses are accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).
Since 2006 we have trained hundreds of journalists, in small classes, to gain their NCTJ qualifications. Their success stories, some of which you'll find here on our website, speak volumes for our tutors, our facilities and our industry experience.
Brighton Journalist Works has a team of highly-experienced journalism trainers. All our tutors are working journalists in newspapers, magazines, radio, television and online. We understand the needs of today's fast-moving media industry. We also have high-profile guest lecturers from national publications, radio and TV.
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. Our student journalists see the news operation first-hand.

Just four years ago, we designed our centre to train journalists to the highest standard.
Our air-conditioned training rooms provide PCs with all the industry software, internet, networked printers and modern teaching facilities including a 42" plasma screen for demonstration materials.
Space to Relax
We provide a comfy area for relaxing between lectures. It's an open-plan space with a well-equipped kitchen. Tea and coffee are provided. There's a large supermarket across from Argus House for food and drink.
Our budding journalists are always welcomed by The Argus staff. You can introduce yourself to reporters and editors and gain advice on your own story ideas.
Training in the same building as a working newspaper is the best way to a career in journalism. None of the other NCTJ courses would have given this chance.
