One of the most dynamic, diverse and demanding contemporary professions, PR is responsible for moulding and shaping a brand’s image. Regardless of whether or not the organisation works directly with the public, the way it is perceived in the public eye can and will affect its performance, relevance and stability. When a business of any kind falls out of favour with the public, it becomes difficult to remain afloat. By contrast, build a strong and positive brand image in the eyes of the public and the rewards can be limitless. Positive PR has the potential to propel small and unknown businesses to global stardom in an instant. Unsurprisingly therefore, those who know how to put PR to work for the benefit of an organisation are considered business assets of priceless value.
This intensive Level 4 Diploma in Public Relations has been designed to mould and shape the high-flying PR gurus of the future. With no specific or knowledge or experience required, the roles and responsibilities of PR professionals are gradually introduced, along with the skills, talents and character traits needed to succeed in this incredible field.
