The Stork Academy

The Stork Academy is a Big Lottery Funded training Academy, specialising in Journalism and Media training. We have developed our Essential Skills for Journalism course for both online and Face to face groups. Our aim is to create a course where trainees feel confident in basic media and journalism skills, so they can complete freelance projects, build a portfolio of work, and apply for work or further education. Why not read our Editor’s Blog all about our first course we held in Stoke?

We also offer two-week work experience opportunities for school and college-age students, offering a real insight into the media industry, with roles including writing and reporting, editing, photography and design. If you are interested in a placement in the Manchester or Stoke-on-Trent areas, please email with the subject ‘Work Experience’ and we’ll be in touch.

In 2016, we plan to expand to social media training and paid-for modules for small business owners, through the Stork Academy website.
