The PRCA has developed a programme of
qualifications to support practitioners in achieving
their professional goals.

Why a PRCA Qualification?

  • All PRCA qualifications are accredited by our prestigious PRCA Qualifications Board, made up of leading industry professionals representing consultancy and in-house positions as well as the public and private sector.
  • They offer the highest possible standards of up-to-date course content as well as teaching and examination and hence are recognised industry-wide as a key indicator of professional competence and commitment.
  • Each is designed so that individuals are offered a choice of courses from within a set of compulsory modules. This means delegates are free to focus on the areas they wish to develop and tailor their Qualification to the specific demands of their career.
  • With no compulsory enrollment date you are free to begin your path to achieving a PRCA accredited Qualification at any time.

Methods of Learning

  • Practitioners taking PRCA qualifications will have the opportunity to learn through face-to-face training and interactive webinar training.
  • Within our highly interactive workshops, students will discover the principles of good PR, examine best industry practice and learn practical skills.

How will you Benefit?

  • Improved efficiency and insight brought about through focussed learning on a Qualification will help you progress in your career by making you a better and more experienced practitioner.
  • Through the use of designatory letters those who complete a Qualification are able to demonstrate to their peers and potential employers their professional competence and commitment to personal development.
  • For employers, the skills and theory learnt will enhance the individual as a professional, adding value to the team and the organisation as a whole.

“This was our first time using the PRCA’s matching service and the PRCA was a reassuring help to us in finding good quality agencies.”

Izzie Peskett, Regional Marketing Manager
- South, Intu Properties

"The PRCA's confidential agency selection service is completely free to clients, and provides very speedy long lists with the issue of conflicting accounts, regionality and specialism already considered. This is a major boon given the generally tight time lines marketing work to."

Rosie Doggett, Procurement Consultant
- RAD Consulting

"The service is run by the PRCA, and the fact their member agencies are CMS compliant is reassuring as it indicates they are financially stable, professional businesses that I would be happy to recommend to my clients"

Rosie Doggett, Procurement Consultant

"We found the PRCA’s ‘Find an agency’ extremely helpful, not only did it save an hour of time in finding the right agency, it is also a free service. We are very pleased with our new extended team, they are a good match!"

Mike Nolan, CEO

"It was important that we followed industry standards when conducting our agency review and the PRCA's matching service fulfilled that for us".
