You will have the opportunity to learn from prominent organisations such as:

  • Red Lion PR
  • PLMR

The objective of our training programme is to provide participants with the skills, professional networks and opportunities to kick start a career in PR & communications.

On average, 97% of graduates that complete the PR Training programme secure jobs in the communications industry shortly after completing the programme.
