Professional development

Although a growing number of journalists and other media professionals are trained at the level of higher education, in Journalism, Communication and other areas, these professionals do not have the obligation of professional development throughout their careers, which depends on their initiative and will. 

The main accredited school for teaching journalism at a non-university level in Portugal, is the Centro Protocolar de Formação para Jornalistas (Protocolar Training Center for Journalists), based in Lisbon.
