Almost 5 hours of video, case studies from around the world and the chance to network with and learn from fellow school marketers will help you develop your knowledge and create a practical communications plan for your school.

'All of the component parts pieced together to make a comprehensive comms plan. It was useful to see some examples and to have extra bits such as websites, people to follow on Twitter etc.'

The course is aimed at those responsible for handling a school's links to the outside world, whether from a teaching, marketing or school support background.
The course costs only £100 - a significant saving on an equivalent multi-day face-to-face course with no cover or travel costs - and with the chance to repeat any part of the training as you develop your expertise.
