Taylor Bennett Foundation announces new virtual insight programme - Step into PR 

The Taylor Bennett Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of Step into PR, our new Virtual Insight Programme.

Designed to inspire and engage young people (aged 16 and over) from a Black, Asian and minority ethnic background, this 5-day virtual insight programme will explore a career in Public Relations (PR) & Communications.

Step into PR programme will provide young people with the opportunity to build their confidence, gain valuable skills and explore a variety of career options available to them within the PR industry.

Participants may not be sure on what PR is and the exciting opportunities it provides. Perhaps participants may have interests in areas such as politics, fashion, content creation, beauty or law (or even a combination of them all) but are unsure on how these interests can connect to viable career options. Our virtual insight programme will help answer all of these questions by providing a glimpse into the range of different areas in PR and you will hear from various PR agencies & in-house communication teams who entered the industry through a range of different paths. 

The programme aims to showcase: 

  • That you do not need a degree to pursue a career in PR
  • That you do not need to live in London to have a career in PR
  • The benefits of pursuing a career in PR & Communications 

Designed to be accessible, by participating in this five-day virtual programme, participants will build their employability skills, their confidence and a range of skills including:

  • Teamwork 
  • Presentation 
  • Time management 
  • Networking 
  • Personal development 

By the end of the week, participants will have an understanding of the wide range of opportunities available within communications and the confidence to apply for work experience and internship opportunities, starting with the Taylor Bennett Foundations’ very own Summer Stars Internship programme (2023) or work experience weeks with our employer network. 

Applications for the programme are now open and the programme is scheduled to run from October 24th - 28th 2022.

Application deadline: 13th October 2022 (09.00am)

To apply, candidates should complete the short application form here
