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 trainees. Visit hosts welcome trainees from one or more of our programmes to their offices. This provides the trainees with the opportunity to meet, talk to and learn from PR professionals. Trips to PR teams and companies is a key part of the programme and are very popular with the trainees. Some hosts run formal training sessions or set the trainees practical tasks, while others provide a more informal introduction to their work. The aim of the training programme is to show trainees every aspect of the PR and communications industry, so we are always looking for agencies and in-house teams across the sector willing to host a visit. There is no financial commitment in becoming a visit host. 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.
