As a public affairs professional, I know that digital is an increasingly important aspect of the political communications mix. It’s vital that practitioners of all disciplines get to grips with this ever-changing landscape and how it can best be used to manage organisational reputation and build meaningful relationships with online stakeholders. I would recommend a digital course to anyone who wants to add a truly valuable string to their bow.

FAQs

All our courses provide unlimited tutor support. We want to support you every step of the way.

Its great news that your employer is investing in your development. The first thing to do is get a purchase order - you will need it when you enrol. This is really important as without it we aren't able to raise an invoice. Alternatively you can pay using a company credit or debit card at checkout - that's probably the easiest way. The second thing is to allow plenty of time! We need payment before the course starts and we know that sometimes company's payment processes can take a while. So act now to get it all sorted in plenty of time. If you need any help or advice, just give us a call and Shelley will help you.
