Who’s this course for?
Everyone. The course is right for you if you want a career in public relations or are already working in the industry but are looking for a first qualification.
Start your learning journey. The CIPR Foundation in PR prepares you for the post-graduate CIPR Professional PR Certificate.
Add a new skill. You may be running your own business, or be doing PR as part of another role, if so this qualification gives you the skills you need and introduces you to some of the theory.
Gain a detailed introduction to public relations: principles and practice of effective media relations, writing for the media, understanding news and use of visual imagery.
Examine the role of the professional PR practitioner, focus on ethical issues, the CIPR code of practice, and continuous professional development.
Practical application: the assessment is a portfolio of work and a discussion paper explaining your approach. If you like, you can use your own organisation as the subject.
