Meet your course leader Martin Flegg

“I’ve been an internal communications practitioner for over twenty years and have witnessed some big changes in what we do and advances in our understanding of theory and practice. I’ve never stopped learning and am passionate about helping other internal communicators to do the same. The satisfaction I get from seeing them develop and grow into true professionals is the reason why I’m still working in this business after all this time.”

Your questions answered

It's 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 you can join the course and we know that sometimes company's payment processes can take a while. So act now to get it all sorted in time. If you need any help or advice, just give us a call.
For CIPR courses, your course fee is a combination of the PR Academy tuition fee and the CIPR awarding body and registration fee. PR Academy provides all your tuition plus an online learning centre with books and resources and marks your work. You don’t really need to buy any books as most resources are online, but you can of course purchase books if you like and we can help you to decide what to buy.
We offer plenty of support. Some courses offer individual tutorials that can be booked. The course leader is easily contactable and there is always someone in the office who can help with day to day queries.
The London Accelerator courses provide two intensive days of tuition plus full access to the online course including any online activities and tutorials. You still have one or two years to complete your studies (depending on which course you join) but you can complete it much more quickly.
There may be funding available in your area, so it is always a good idea to do some research as there may be schemes that we aren’t aware of. The CIPR occasionally has funding schemes and we'll update here when the next one is announced.
