As the largest provider of public relations education in the UK, PR Academy not only designs and delivers a wide range of face-to-face and online communication courses, but also works with top awarding bodies, including:
The University of Chester (UoC)
The University of Chester is the top-ranked ‘new’ university in the North West of England. Its Centre for Work Related Studies (CWRS) is renowned internationally for its ability to work with organisations and professionals in the workplace in order to provide significant learning opportunities and real workplace impact. It runs one of the largest work-based learning programmes in Europe and has worked with major private sector organisations as well as the Cabinet Office, RAF, NHS and others.
The University is acknowledged as a leader in the provision of work-based training and facilitation and so is a natural partner and awarding body for PR Academy’s practically focused courses. Find out more about the UoC courses developed and run by PR Academy.
