PRCA

My apprenticeship with the PRCA was a challenging but rewarding experience. There is a lot of work that goes into the diploma, but this is because it teaches you so much. Although I don’t think I will pursue a career in Public Relations, I have taken away many skills that I can apply in my new role and the future. Thank you to everyone involved.

Evan McCullough, Past PR Apprentice (2021), Kier Highways

My apprenticeship has given me the opportunity to become a recognised professional in an area of expertise that I am passionate about whilst also receiving full pay and support from my employer. I’ve made far more valuable connections and progressed a lot further professionally completing the PRCA apprenticeship than I would have done in a full-time educational setting. It was a bit of a balancing act, but well worth the hard work – I still can’t believe I got a distinction! https://www.prca.org.uk/LucySalvageFactFile

Within my apprenticeship role, I had the opportunity to be hands-on in all elements of the exciting and fast-paced business, from press releases to face-to-face client proposal meetings.

If you're considering undertaking an apprenticeship with the PRCA, I would implore you to take the leap and to do it. Not only do you earn two PR qualifications from the course, you also learn the vital skills and knowledge that are needed to pursue a career within the PR/comms industry. Everyone at the PRCA is extremely helpful, so don't be afraid, take the leap, you won't regret it.

I have had an incredible time at Warner Bros. completing my apprenticeship with the PRCA. Thank you to everyone who helped me complete it and achieve my qualification!

Lucy Beldham, Past PR Apprentice (2020), Warner Bros.

The apprenticeship has given me a range of opportunities and experiences which I never would have been offered had I gone onto university. I have gained valuable skills that simply cannot be taught from a textbook. The apprenticeship has boosted my self-confidence and has provided me with the professional skills needed for a successful career in PR. https://www.prca.org.uk/MollyFennemoreNAW2021 & https://www.prca.org.uk/MollyFennemoreLessons & https://www.prca.org.uk/MollyFennemoreFactFile

Molly Fennemore, Past PR Apprentice (2019), Templemere PR

I truly don’t understand why apprenticeships are not more popular. I can learn from the best while completing practical work, study and grow my knowledge and skill set for that work, whilst earning a wage. Having a job that I thoroughly enjoy not only increases my productivity at work, but also allows my study time to be more fulfilling. I would say to anybody contemplating starting or joining an apprenticeship – do it. I cannot recommend it enough. https://www.prca.org.uk/AlexHouseNAW2021

Alexandra House, PR Apprentice (2020), Champion Communications

I was surprised with how quickly I felt like part of the team. The great thing about being on an apprenticeship is that your employer is signing up to help you progress. My colleagues have supported me to get hands-on straight away and learn something new every day. To me, this apprenticeship means a wide-open horizon for my future. https://www.prca.org.uk/NaomiBennettNAW2021

My apprenticeship has helped me flourish in my interpersonal skills, developing relationships with a range of people who work in different roles to me. I have also been able to develop my understanding for writing for different audiences and how to effectively target the specific audience. I am both understanding the theory behind PR and communications, as well as being able to use the theory in real life situations. https://www.prca.org.uk/GeorgiaCantrillNAW2021
