"The teachers were inspiring and helped me gain the confidence and qualifications I needed for a journalism career. I’m now doing something I love and am also a published author. I can’t ask for better than that"

Roxy Freeman, The Guardian and author of Little Gypsy


Tailor-Made for Journalism Training

Brighton Journalist Works is an independent NCTJ-accredited journalism training company.

Since 2006 we have trained hundreds of journalists, in small classes. 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.

We are based at Vantage Point in the heart of Brighton's media hub - you only have to walk out the front door to trip over a story.   We are short walks from all three stations in central Brighton and on many of the main bus routes.

We have great partnerships with many media companies across Brighton and beyond, including our near neighbours, the Brighton and Hove Independent, the Argus, Heart and Latest TV. 

We offer:

  • Quality training delivered fast and effectively
  • Guaranteed work experience
  • Affordable prices
  • Training by exceptional journalists
  • Cutting-edge journalism skills for all media
  • Production Journalism options
  • A friendly professional environment
  • Sound advice to help you become a journalist
  • Support to help you achieve your dreams of a career in journalism

Our training room at Vantage Point has iMacs with all the industry software, internet, networked printers and a state-of-the-art projector which beams the teaching materials over one of the walls. You can also relax with a coffee between lectures in our student 'chill-out' zone.

The heartbeat of the city

Fancy relaxing after a hard day's study over a beer with your friends, or catching a bite to eat or maybe taking in the latest movie at the UK's oldest-working cinema? It's all on your doorstep when you train at Vantage Point. And we are opposite the city's main fire station, if you want to chase a story or two.

Study full-time or part-time

Our training rooms are available 24/7 whenever you study.
