'Hard work pays off' for PR qualifications students
More than 200 public relations students earned CIPR qualifications after the Institute released its Q3 assignment results to candidates across the world.
Yesterday's cohort comprised the first group of graduates to complete the CIPR's relaunched Professional PR Diploma.
The highly-anticipated results were issued to students enrolled at study centres in the UK, Middle East and Africa. More than 130 of the graduates gained qualifications by studying with the PR Academy.
Qualifications are critical to public relations' ambition to become recognised as a strategic discipline. They equip us with robust theory and planning tools to improve our performance, and help us demonstrate and deliver results in an ethical and professional manner.
I congratulate all of our graduates - your hard work has paid off. I'd also like to thank all ten study centres for teaching and equipping these PR practitioners.
