PUT ON YOUR PUBLIC FACE COMMUNICATION THE KEY TO A CUTTING-EDGE CAREER
SYDNEY TAFE’s Diploma of Public Relations is the first step to an exciting and rewarding career in PR.
The head teacher Anne Lawler said writing was at the heart of the course as the best link to media and the general public.
“We focus on both the foundations of PR and particularly the practice of PR so our graduates really are work ready,” Ms Lawler said.
“Many students also do an internship which can sometimes lead directly to employment and gives our students additional practical experience.”
The course covers writing media releases, social media posts, campaign plans and digital awareness, which is the key platform for PR professionals today.
It’s a practical course but communications and marketing theory are considered, and students look at great PR work and campaigns.
“The opportunities for PR are limitless. Every industry needs good PR. And PR is a growth industry,” Ms Lawler said.
Spread the word ... public relations is a growing industry.
