The programme

The Advanced Diploma is a learning programme which allows students to define their own professional development objectives having completed a self-assessment of their existing knowledge and skills using the level two of the IoIC profession map as a guide. 

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, 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

The approach to the Advanced Diploma programme allows for high levels of autonomous learning and development of knowledge and skills relevant to each student's current role and organsiation.
