Accelerate

A fast-track learning and development programme that puts communicators on the path to success when tackling strategic communication.

The Institute of Internal Communication has joined forces with employee communication and engagement specialist, Gatehouse Group, to create Accelerate – a ground-breaking fast track learning and development programme. Designed to enable internal communicators to move on in their career, and stand out from the crowd in their ability to translate organisational objectives into meaningful communication strategy. 


A four-day masterclass covering the fundamentals of strategic internal communication, Accelerate, accredited by the IoIC, equips practitioners with the learning they need to add even more value to their organisation and build their reputation as trusted advisors.  Accelerate is fast-paced, interactive and pragmatic with a focus on equipping delegates to deliver practical solutions while also covering the vital theory. It includes techniques and insights to fine-tune those vital people skills. Drawing on Gatehouse’s pioneering work in ‘bitesize’ learning, it makes the best possible use of practitioners’ time – helping them to achieve their potential and organisational objectives.

Who will benefit?


With a focus on delivering value-adding, strategically-focussed internal communication, Accelerate is an intermediate-level programme aimed at aspiring professionals with one to five years of IC experience.

What it will cover?

Accelerate is run as two separate two-day programmes:


Accelerate Part 1
: provides the foundations of strategic internal communication


Accelerate Part 2: is focussed on driving change, demonstrating value and becoming a trusted advisor.

Practical exercises, group discussions, case studies and real-life stories from the trainers' and delegates' own experiences are used throughout to bring the theory to life. 

Although the courses are sold separately, we recommend that you do both.

Each course has 6 interactive modules (12 modules for the full programme), as follows:
 
Accelerate 1: The foundation of strategic internal communication
  • The fundamentals of IC planning
  • Hardwiring comms to organisational goals
  • Advance audience segmentation
  • Making your messages stick
