This brand-new initiative is specially crafted to engage and inspire individuals aged 16 and above from diverse backgrounds, including Black, Asian, and minority ethnic communities.
The ‘Step into PR’ Programme is an exciting, dynamic 5-day virtual insights program aimed at equipping young participants with invaluable skills and boosting their confidence. It’s also an opportunity to explore potential career paths within the PR industry.
This initiative serves as an introduction to the world of PR and Communications, dispelling the misconception that a formal degree is a needed for entering this industry.

- Have a genuine interest in learning about careers in Public Relations (PR) and communications.
