Great to read former CIPR Online Diploma student Adam Riddell from Crystal Public Relations on Jersey in Profile Extra sharing his thoughts and experiences of online study.
The Online Diploma certainly has an international flavour. As well as many students from the far corners of the UK, this year students have joined us from Africa, the US, Romania, Switzerland, Qatar and Scandanavia. We love the fact that the CIPR qualifications have such international appeal.
And it isnt just with the PR Diploma. Recently we have been out to Bulgaria to help the CIPR qualifications centre in the capital Sofia get the Internal Communciation Certificate off the ground. What a smashing group they were - 11 Bulgarians and one student who flew in from Slovakia! Fascinating to learn that they face such similar challenges to internal comms practitioners here in the UK. We (Kevin and I) were also invited to speak at the Centre's 'Good Communicators' evening event too which was attended by senior communcators from Government, internal comms practitioners and some academics. There certainly is a great thirst for learning and professionalising PR.
