The journalism courses at Up To Speed are designed by professional journalists and photographers to give you a real chance of achieving your ambitions.

You will be taught by professionals who have worked at the top in British media. Their knowledge and experience has been acquired at The TimesThe Guardian, BBC News, The Independent, Sky News, The Times Education Supplements and ITN.

We firmly believe the route we offer you into journalism and photography is faster, cheaper and more popular with editors than other options. We know that editors are looking for people with The National Council for the Training of Journalists’ Diplomas in Journalism and Press Photography.

So, what kind of journalist can you become at Up To Speed?

You can train to be a news reporter or a sports reporter. You can become a feature writer for a magazine, photojournalist covering sport or a press photographer working on news stories.

Our next courses start on September .  We have already started making offers on these courses, so contact us today if you are interested in applying or attending one of our interview days.
