Interested in a career in journalism? We have just the course for you.

The Academy of Disabled Journalists has been running for four years now , and they are on the hunt for the next cohort of talented disabled journalists.

You could achieve your Certificate in Foundation Journalism through a fully inclusive and accessible online course run by the Academy of Disabled Journalists in conjunction with National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ), but hurry as the closing date for applications is 20 April 2023!

The weekly 1.5 hour lessons will commence at 11am on the 4th May 2023 and the course will run for six months. All sessions are recorded for future reference and revision. Students will be required to attend the classes online via Zoom, but they do understand that due to illness/doctors appointments/long-term health conditions this may not always be possible, but they are really looking for students that can commit to attend the classes on a weekly basis to ensure they get the most out of the course, and the Academy is committed to supporting you on your journey.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a unique, inclusive initiative to gain a qualification equivalent to an A Level providing a great introduction into journalism. that many editors consider to be a prerequisite for junior reporter roles.

The course, which is subsidised by the National Lottery, is a great chance to jump on a pathway to employment in media and they were recently awarded the NCTJ Award for Excellence in Journalism winning the award for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion validating the Academies and the work they do.Click below to find out more information on the Academy, the CFJ and how to apply:
