Marketing Advice for Schools has teamed up with Resonate to offer an exciting online course in Schools Communication. 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.
'Thank you for making the course available. It has certainly proved interesting and motivating as I seek to improve how we promote our school and engage with parents and other audiences.'

'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 £150 - 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.
