Employers Host a visit Host a visit The Taylor Bennett Foundation’s work is only possible because of the support of numerous companies and individuals working in the PR, communication and media sectors, and beyond. There are a number of ways employers can support the Foundation – including hosting a visit for the Foundation’s candidate network. Hosts welcome candidates from one or more of our programmes to their offices. This provides our candidates with the opportunity to meet, talk to and learn from PR professionals. Some hosts run formal training sessions or set our candidates practical tasks, while others provide a more informal introduction to their work. The aim is to show our candidates every aspect of the PR and communications industry, across as many different sectors and disciplines as possible. Our masterclasses run from January to December. This year we will be looking for masterclass hosts to support the following programmes (virtually or in person*). - PR Training programmes- PR Mentoring programme- Summer Stars bootcamp- Virtual Insight Programme *Subject to government guidelines and when it is safe to do so, we will return to in-person masterclasses. I can’t recommend hosting a masterclass for the Taylor Bennett Foundation trainees highly enough. Everybody gets so much out of it. Watch out for future PR pros! The British Business Bank’s communications team has already signed up to run another Masterclass in Summer 2020.
