The Press Association is currently not recruiting for its renowned graduate training scheme. However, if you are interested in being a journalist, it is important that you have the right training.

 Our training business, Press Association Training, is Europe’s largest journalism and media training company.

 It runs foundation courses in news journalism, sports journalism and magazine journalism. The courses take place in our central London headquarters and news and sport is also run at our centre in Newcastle upon Tyne.

If you are interested in finding out more about any of our training schemes, please visit the following websites:

Work experience at the Press Association

For over a century generations of great journalists have started their careers at the Press Association and today we still give many people their first taste of life in the media through our work experience scheme.

As you would expect places are limited but every year a number of would-be journalists or students interested in a career in the media spend some time in our multimedia newsrooms and other departments, learning how PA tells stories in words, pictures and video.

Contact Tracey Linzell and tell us why we should offer you a work experience placement.

Please note applications will only be considered if there is an up-to-date CV and a covering letter detailing dates of availability and the specific area in which you would like your work experience in.

I can safely say, I’ve never enjoyed and learnt so much from one week. I worked with some great people – covering most of the Jubilee.
