The British Academy for Training and Development presents this course in Press Editing for all professionals interested in developing their Press Editing qualities and capabilities, and becoming more familiar with modern and contemporary Journalistic approach.

Seeking Truth is the first and main task of Journalism, while the first loyalty of Journalism should be for citizens. Professional journalist shall act as an independent observer of the process of influencing the public, and providing a wide space for public criticism. Professional journalist must also ensure that his work is interesting and interrelated, so that the news he works on is comprehensive and related to each other in a systematic and comprehensive manner. Therefore, the British Academy of Training and Development provides this course including the foregoing standards as the main pillars of the course.

Tendency to doubt was and still a major feature of Journalism, and the landmark that distinguishes Press and Medial. No press organization can survive for a long period of time if its nature is just cheering and providing support for governments or specific bodies, or if they are constantly expressing their conviction and satisfaction with the current conditions as they are, or if they failed to alarm the public of the social, political, and economic shortcomings and disadvantages. This is because the Media and Press in the broadest sense are to urge change, and therefore CHANGE remains the first law of Press.
