About the author
Richard Bailey FCIPR MPRCA is editor of our Insights, formerly PR Place. He teaches and assesses undergraduate, postgraduate and professional students.
PR Academy’s 2016 ‘Trends Survey’ researched students’ views as practising communicators on professional qualifications, their professional experiences and their training needs and priorities.
The study examined:
- Students’ reasons for studying
- Skills gaps
- Employer funding for qualifications
For 2016, the survey was extended to look at how communicators perceive their employers’ use of social media, and whether influencing senior managers/clients about the value that PR has as a strategic function is a significant challenge for them.
