Be­ing a jour­nal­ist has al­ways been a dream of mine but since I de­cided not to go to univer­sity af­ter com­plet­ing my A-lev­els I was un­sure of the ca­reer path I wanted to take.

When this op­por­tu­nity to do a jour­nal­ism ap­pren­tice­ship came about many peo­ple men­tioned it to me in­clud­ing my friends and fam­ily. Af­ter much thought I de­cided I would be crazy to not ap­ply for this chance be­cause what could be much bet­ter than fol­low­ing my dream, gain­ing in­dus­try stan­dard qual­i­fi­ca­tions and be­ing paid for it. To my de­light I was ac­cepted for the op­por­tu­nity and have not looked back since. I have al­ready com­pleted ar­ti­cles, fea­tures and in­ter­views and find it crazy that this is only the start of my jour­ney.

I work along­side many im­por­tant mem­bers of the team who ev­ery day teach me at least one new skill. Ev­ery­day is a new chal­lenge with this ap­pren­tice­ship and it is rather in­cred­i­ble that I am al­ways ex­cited go­ing into work, even on those dreaded Mon­days! Through­out our time here with John­ston Press we will be learn­ing all as­pects of jour­nal­ism and when com­pleted you would choose a field of in­ter­est you would hope to en­ter in the world of jour­nal­ism. Fash­ion and styling jour­nal­ism has al­ways my strong­est in­ter­est and I can imag­ine that this will re­main how­ever it is so ed­u­cat­ing to learn dif­fer­ent as­pects that I wouldn’t usu­ally look into or study.

I highly rec­om­mend this new ap­pren­tice­ship scheme with John­ston Press if you want to be­gin your jour­ney writ­ing and mak­ing your mark in the world.
