Journalism Apprenticeships

Journalism Apprenticeships

Offering an apprenticeship is a great way to train staff and for your organisation to benefit from an employee with the latest sector skills and knowledge. 

Whether you’re a local or national newspaper, radio station or TV company, or an organisation that needs to employ a public relations professional to increase your profile and improve communication with customers, a journalism apprenticeship will ensure your employee has the necessary skills and knowledge to perform their job role to the standard you require. 

Apprentices will combine working for your organisation with studying for the NCTJ diploma in journalism at college. In the workplace they will learn on-the-job by working alongside existing staff, whilst at college they will be taught by tutors who have many years of working in the industry themselves. 

What’s more, both you and the apprentice will be supported throughout the training by a college assessor who will visit the workplace to make sure your apprentice is meeting their targets and that you are both getting the most out of the training. 

The college has a dedicated recruitment team to support employers in appointing an apprentice – including advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates for interview; and with a talent pool of enthusiastic young people waiting for a business apprenticeship you can be sure you’ll be employing the right person for the job!  

And apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff! If you want to upskill and develop existing members of your team they can benefit from apprenticeship training too – email and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your requirements further.
