Courses for summer 2018

All courses are run in a group, open style format, with practical exercises, to encourage plenty of discussion, ideas sharing and generation. They are aimed at Press officers and Media relations managers, Press teams, Marketing and Fundraising teams and individuals – and in smaller organisations, anyone responsible for communications work.

  • An introduction to communications training. An ideal course for anyone responsible for managing any media relations activity to help you reach your target audience.
  • An introduction to writing skills. A practical course for anyone who writes for your organisation, whether it’s an annual report, the website, brochures, press releases, social media posts or a job advert.
  • An introduction to content creation. A practical course for anyone starting to generate written or visual content for your organisation, from websites, brochures, use of still and moving images and social media accounts.
  • An introduction to bagging a sponsor. Sponsorship can be anything from funding a one-off project, to an annual event or a long-term partnership, but competition is fierce. This provides an introduction to any organisation wanting to engage with new sponsors.
