The programme will be developed in partnership with the CIPR Local Public Services Group 'to ensure the content reflects the needs of members'.
The details are revealed by senior lecturer in communication at the university Wendy Moran, in this week's column. She is also education lead with the CIPR local public services group.
The programme will be an addition to the CIPR's provision for those in the public sector who already have the CIPR Diploma. It will be launched in 2011 and further information will be available through the Group's ezine and the CIPR website.
