Professional sub-editing courses leading to the National Council for the Training of Journalists subbing exam.

First-class sub-editors are always in demand

All over the UK and internationally, sub-editors are the glue that binds publications together. A sub-editor’s work can make or break a page.

Reporters and editors rely on good subs to produce top-quality pages in print and online, so that readers will stick with them.

“After being made redundant I took the part-time course in sub-editing to improve my skills. The course offered plenty of work experience opportunities and through an initial placement on the Mail on Sunday YOU magazine I managed to secure a paid position as a sub-editor on the Metro newspaper after just two weeks.”

Tom Dartnell
