What we do
NUJ Training Wales is offering a programme of subsidised, practical courses in new media and core journalism skills.
We can currently offer courses at £25 per day to members because of the funding we receive from the Welsh Government; some are free. Please take advantage of this opportunity!
Booking for courses is online via Eventbrite and the course calendar features on this page.
