The programme

The Advanced Diploma is a learning programme which allows students to define and achieve their own professional development objectives. Students will complete a self-assessment of their existing knowledge and skills using the level two of the IoIC profession map as a guide at the start of the course and use this to develop their goals, which they will then work on throughout the programme.  

With the support of a dedicated facilitator, students produce a personal professional development plan to guide their studies and work towards achieving their personal objectives, ultimately producing a professional portfolio which demonstrates their learning and development, and which is underpinned by a critical narrative based on theory and best practice. 

Advanced Diploma students also work collaboratively to produce a joint report on a topical question related to internal communication practice set by the IoIC. Download an example of an Advanced Diploma collaborative project here. This collaborative project provides students with the opportunity to share learning, build long-lasting professional relationships, and work together on a practial, relevant, and valuable project. 

The approach to the Advanced Diploma programme allows for the development of knowledge, skills and behaviours relevant to each student's current role and organsiation.
