A new day-release course for multimedia sub-editing is to be launched by Press Association Training.
The 20-day course, which will run from PA Training’s new London centre in September, will cover all the traditional skills of sub-editing and explain how they are transferred to online.
Students who successfully submit a portfolio of their work done during the course and pass an assessment will receive PA’s diploma in sub-editing.
Peter Sands, director of PA Training, said: “This is a great way for new subs to gain a recognised qualification as well as develop new skills and knowledge to enable them to work in a new publishing company.”
The course costs £1,500 plus VAT.
