Classroom sessions are intensive and participative and include a variety of approaches including lectures, group discussion and practical exercises / case studies. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences and question presenters and guest speakers.

Assessment & Accreditation

Assessment is by continuous assessment taking account of attendance and participation in class.

Participants are encouraged to apply learning from the readings, modules and discussions and show how these apply to their own work situation and challenges. Final assessment is by way of a 3,000-word case study / report-style assignment tackling challenges currently faced by participants or which will form the basis of an upcoming workplace project.

These courses are accredited by the Public Relations Institute of Ireland – the professional body for communications and PR.
