PRCA Diploma in Change Management and Communication

“For anyone wishing to study a professional qualification without the pressure of strict deadlines I’d highly recommend the PRCA. Their approach to learning allows students the freedom to fit studies into their own lifestyle”.

Carl Harvey, HMRC

The course really helped me reflect on the ways I have previously managed change, both within my organisation and with external partners. I’m pleased to have been able to underpin the practical examples I have with the theory, and also to be able to have identified what approaches I could utilise in future to improve the role communications can play in change management. The lectures were always interesting and relevant, and learning alongside peers from different industries helped bring competing and complimentary perspectives to the discussions.

It enabled me to explore in detail how communications and project/programme management can work together to deliver effective change. The course covered a wide range of really interesting topics and I would thoroughly recommend it.”
