Alumni Support Network

Alumni benefits and staying involved

There are plenty of opportunities to stay involved with The Public Relations Academy through our alumni community – and plenty of reasons to do so…

Your engagement with Public Relations Academy does not terminate on completion of your training programme. We keep in touch with our alumni for purpose of monitoring progress as well creating an opportunity for them to also share their experience with budding public relations practitioners.

Though our Pass-it-Forward programme, our past students have the opportunity to facilitate a couple of classes on selected areas of interest to them. This usually creates a win-win for both the students and the facilitators, as it creates a platform for mutual engagement and a launch pad for the facilitator to improve his/her facilitating skills.

As a member of our alumni community, you have access to:

  • research information and business intelligence
  • networking opportunities
  • practical career support, advice and referral
  • a lifelong email forwarding address

The Academy offers alumni support throughout their career:

  • Career coaching – support with career planning, job search and career management
  • Job search preparation – advice on planning a successful job search including CV writing, networking and interviewing
  • Career Workshops – update job search and career management skills or gain insights from industry leaders
  • Career Resources – access an extensive range of information, tools and databases

Training is not complete until the trainee becomes a trainer.

Through our Pass-it-Forward programme, we create an opportunity for all past students to facilitate a minimum of 2 lectures with current students in a selected area of interest. This creates a mutual advantage for both the facilitator and the students. While they students are exposed to knowledge as delivered by the facilitating alumni, the alumni uses this platform to boost their facilitating and presentation skills.

If you are an Alumni of Professional Exams Tutors and The Public Relations Academy, signing up for this programme should excite you. You’ll usually be notified a couple of weeks ahead and given time to prepare for your classes.  You can choose a minimum of two classes and a maximum of four classes.
