Dyslexia Action’s Marketing Communications Assistant Rebecca Endacott has been awarded the PR Academy bursary towards studying the CIPR Advanced Certificate in public relations.
The bursary was introduced by PR Academy to provide those without access to funding the opportunity to study for an industry-recognised public relations professional qualification. To win the bursary, which consists of £800 towards the tuition fee, Rebecca had to argue the case for undertaking a PR professional qualification in no more than 500 words.
According to PR Academy director Ann Pilkington: “Rebecca presented a convincing case. Her passion for learning and professional standards was clearly evident, as was the sheer sense of enjoyment and satisfaction she gets from working in public relations.”
Rebecca Endacott: “I’m delighted to have won. I think professional qualifications are really important in helping to raise standards and overcome the myths about PR. I’m keen to gain a theoretical understanding of what I do at work, so that I can better support my colleagues and do an even better job.”
