CIPR Advanced Certificate
Our Pass Rate for the CIPR Advanced Certificate last year was 100%!
The CIPR Advanced Certificate provides a basic knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of PR in order to assist delegates in developing as efficient and effective PR executives. The Course is taught over 4 Saturday sessions over 8 months and is assessed through a critical reasoning test, a planning assignment based on a case study and a 3,000 word critique of PR as a developing discipline.
The course involves investigating case histories in workshops with visiting practitioners and by reference to recommended texts. Students will also be expected to draw on information to build case histories, and find evidence for practical examples from a wide range of daily newspapers, the broadcast media, magazines, journals and specialist publications. They will also be required to create a diary of their professional development which they can carry forward throughout their working lives.
Delegates who hold the CIPR Internal Communication Certificate are exempt from the final unit of the Advanced Certificate and eligible for a 25% discount of the College course fee.

"The Advanced Certificate has given me a fantastic grounding in PR. It is really important to understand the theory and history behind PR practice whilst in the early stages of your career, and the Advanced Certificate was the perfect vehicle to do so. The level of support received from my tutor and course leader was exceptional and it has been a truly rewarding experience that will no doubt benefit me in the future."
