With several university qualifications, including a Masters degree, already under her belt, Ruth was looking for a recognised training solution that could deliver practical skills online, offered training she could complete while working full-time, and offered some flexibility in her study schedule to work around busy periods at work.
Ruth selected HSPR as the ideal training partner because of our course delivery designed specifically for online training, the workplace integration of all assessment activities – meaning this became part of her day to day job rather than a cumbersome additional workload, the flexibility a bespoke training package provided, and the one-on-one trainer support which saw her skills and confidence grow enormously over the course of her studies.
“What I liked best about the course is that I could integrate the seminars into my working week, and apply the assignments to my actual work – which I still refer to for planning and evaluating and to help spark creative thinking!”
“I work full-time in business development and the new skills I gained combined with the feedback and guidance from the tutor gave me a lot more work-confidence in things such as discussing potential new projects with my boss.”
Ruth completed the Executive Program in PR Practice in late 2016 but has enjoyed the experience so much and learnt so many new valuable skills, she plans to continue her studies with HSPR in 2017 by enrolling in a writing course. We look forward to welcoming her back!
