CIPR: new qualification

CIPR Public Services Group, in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), is launching ‘Second Steps’, the UK’s first qualification for rising local government PROs moving into communications management.

The post-graduate level course will run from 10 – 12 June at MMU.

Second Steps is aimed at those who have been in PR for two or more years, or for outstanding practitioners with less experience. It builds on the First Steps course aimed at those who are new to local government communications.

The qualification will be delivered by award winning local government PR practitioners alongside MMU academics. Successful graduates will receive a master’s level qualification, equivalent to 20 credits.
