NATIONAL N-DIPLOMA: PUBLIC RELATIONS

A qualification in Public relations is for those individuals who have a keen interest in building, managing, and maintaining the status and reputation of a company or famous person. This career requires the PR Officer to define the target audience within the public for their client with the intention of achieving their proper perception, support and goodwill. Pax College offers a recognised Department of Higher Education and Training qualification in Public Relations which will adequately prepare our students to eventually become knowledgeable, creative, and skilled PR officers who will be able to monitor publicity and perform thorough research to ascertain each stakeholder’s expectation of their client, thereafter strategically influencing the public’s perspective and attitude of the organisation.
