What is a mentoring scheme? Put simply, the scheme pairs undergraduates interested in PR with local PR professionals. The aim is to help nurture new entrants into the profession, aiding the transition from student to PR professional.
Much of the CIPR's work is focused on raising the skills level of the profession. The CIPR South West group are keen to help develop the industry's future talent, as well as ensure that students hoping to work in PR have a full understanding of the industry and the skills required. The end result will be graduates who are more employable, benefiting both students and employers.
Right now, we are in the process of redeveloping the way we offer mentoring. Further details on the new offering will be posted here soon.
