Professional Development

Our Courses

..for more details.

These are standard, tailored (regular or one off topics) developed and run by The Public Affairs Recruitment Company.

  • Range of topics – Check out our  Course Topics to see the range of subjects we cover.
  • Training calendar Please note: We only run a selection of topics each Training Calendar.
  • Tailored courses – are individually developed for a client for the staff of one organisation so it meets their needs exactly. We take a brief, develop a detailed quote and options and on approval, prepare the course, identify the trainers and deliver it on the day. We collect feedback and ratings and provide a report to management within a week.
  • Standard courses – are courses where staff from a number of different organisations attend on the scheduled day. This suits organisations who may only need 1-2 staff trained and the value of attending a mixed session is the value of learning from the staff of other organisations.  Course names are standardised (eg Media 101 – Understanding the Australian Media) and the content delivered is proven and has been rated by previous attendees. We are continually upgrading and improving our courses and we mix Presenters so if you send staff to several different courses, chances are they will have a different Presenter and Visiting Professionals and your organisation benefits from the change of perspective.

We use experienced industry professionals who are actively working in the industry as our Presenters and Visiting Professionals

  • Our courses are highly regarded by our course attendees who rate all aspects (content, Presenters, Visiting Professionals, venue, food etc)
  • Refer to our course feedback on our How Do Our Courses Rate? page for more information.
