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.

We organise everything. To give you a flavour of what we offer in the past year we’ve put together:

  • National Conferences: The highlight of our year, #SPANC descends on one university a year for a weekend full of workshops, speakers, awards and networking.
  • Regional Conferences: Our regional SPA events aim to make top-class speakers and workshops affordable and accessible to everyone.  
  • Socials: Up and down the county we hold regular pub meet-ups so that everyone can get to know each other a bit better.
  • Masterclasses: Want to become an overnight expert? We host one-off classes in popular topics.
  • Online Streams: Live web seminars to get you up to speed on a range of topics.

Here are our upcoming events:
