Running a Press Office
Running a Press office takes a great deal of research which means having to sort out facts from fiction. Honing these skills allows for accurate campaign building, allowing for the correct information to get out into the public. Participants will learn what exactly goes on within a press office, from technical process to general daily life. This course will dive into how to run an effective press office by looking at case studies and iterative practice.
This press office training will give participants insight into the principles, functions and processes behind the operation of an effective press office. The course will outline examples of successful press offices while also demonstrating – through real-world examples – how core principles and practices can be adapted to work in a multitude of challenging scenarios.
Running a Press Office is from our Information, Digital & Data Management series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
