From our annual national conference to training days and conferences around the country, we aim to present a range of affordable and useful events for student journalists.
Training & Tools
We’re building a huge database of online resources and tools to help you make the most of your time in student journalism, with new material every week.
Awards & Competitions
We hold our prestigious national awards every year, as well as keep track of scholarships and competitions across the UK.
With a network of regional and national officers, we aim to give a swift reply to any member needing advice or support, as well as create a strong community.

Hardly any job and grad scheme websites include a compilation of all the journalism and media graduates schemes in the UK. But don’t worry – we’ve fixed that.
The SPA is pleased to have partnered with Journotraining.com to offer a free online course in Media Law.
Every Tuesday we cover a different topic that you might not find in basic training or your degree.
