A new college for aspiring sub-editors has been approved by the National Council for the Training of Journalists.
The Journalist Works is an independent training college in Brighton based at the city's Argus newspaper offices. The college offers a new NCTJ-accredited, 12-week course covering all elements of journalism production including layout, copy editing and media law.
The company is run by former TV and radio journalist Paula O'Shea, who established the Brighton Centre for Journalism at Brighton's City College.
She said: "Our courses are not just for those who want to become journalists but for reporters who want to make the switch to the subs' table. We offer an affordable way of gaining skills the industry needs and wants in a relatively short time."
The Journalist Works opens its doors on 16 April. One-day taster courses and two-week certificates in sub-editing for reporters will be launched later this year.
