Why get a qualification?
The Professional PR Diploma is the CIPR’s flagship qualification. It helps you stand out from the crowd.
Studying for a qualification results in a deep level of learning because you apply what you learn as you go and reflect on it over a period of time.
The cherry on top? The senior management door I’d been knocking on for years quickly opened and I am now a Senior Communications Manager.
Meet your course leader Chris Tucker
Chris Tucker calls herself a news junkie. “Sky News is constantly on in the background after, of course, BBC Radio Four’s Today programme. The development of the new news ecosystem meshing on and offline media is something that fascinates me. It’s certainly an enormously exciting time to be working in PR.”
