TRAINING AND MENTORING FOR FUTURE PR TALENT
The Taylor Bennett Foundation’s award-winning training and mentoring programmes exist to encourage black, Asian and ethnic minority graduates to pursue a career in communications.

There are currently three programmes for eligible students and graduates to choose from: the training programme, the mentoring programme and the work placement programme.


THE TRAINING PROGRAMME
With our flagship training programme you would join the Foundation on a full-time basis for ten weeks. During this time you would:

• attend educational sessions on media, business and PR.

• complete regular practical assignments.

• meet and visit numerous communication agencies and professionals.

• receive expert careers counselling as they look for their first job in PR.

The aim of the programme is to equip you with the knowledge, skillset and network you need to pursue a career in PR and communications, while guiding you through the initial job search process as you seek your first job in the sector.

You will receive an allowance while taking part in this programme which covers your living and travel costs.

THE MENTORING PROGRAMME
Our mentoring programme is open to BAME graduates and final year students interested in a career in PR and communications.

Successful candidates will be matched with an existing practitioner in the industry who will help them identify career objectives, prepare for the job market and begin the job application process.

THE WORK PLACEMENT PROGRAMME
Our new Summer Stars work placement programme – launching in summer 2018 – will offer paid work placements for up to 50 BAME students and graduates. Participants will attend an intensive one-week training programme at the London College Of Communication before joining a leading PR agency or in-house communications team for a four week placement.

The training programme – featuring talks from a number of leading PR practitioners and lectures from TBF trainer Chris Cooke – will provide a beginners guide to PR, insight into the different strands of the sector, and an overview of the latest trends in media, PR and corporate communications.
