CIPR launches two new free services to support members #GetChartered


#GetChartered Week sees the CIPR launch two free services to support members becoming Chartered PR Practitioners.

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has launched its #GetChartered Week today with the announcement of two new and free services to support members to become chartered.

A recent report from the CIPR and the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) found becoming chartered can provide a competitive edge for marketing and PR professionals. #GetChartered Week will demystify the Chartership process, and - through these new services - give members the confidence to achieve the highest level of professional recognition in public relations.

Free Chartership Confidence & Personal Impact mini-coaching 

Anyone who registers their interest and books a place on a Chartership Assessment Day by 31 August 2022 will receive a free 40-minute Chartership Confidence and Personal Impact mini-coaching session, delivered by CIPR Trainer and Executive Coach Dannie-Lu Carr. The sessions are available from 1 June onwards.

Our mission is to create a predominantly chartered profession so that public relations enjoys the same standing as others.  A lot of members say they aren't sure they're ready or confident about handling the assessment. Our free training offer gives you the knowledge, our free buddy service will give you the insight, and our free coaching service will give you the confidence to take getting chartered off your wishlist and onto your priority list for 2022.
