Training & mentoring

We know many businesses have super talented in-house marketing teams who may be under pressure.

Or maybe you have a team that works on your PR and marketing who would benefit from further knowledge and experience. 

However your business is set up, we can offer training and support.

We offer a variety of training options, which can be hosted virtually via a video-conferencing tool or via in-house sessions.

One-to-one Two-hour Takeover sessions for smaller businesses are also available and can be done at a time to suit you either virtually or at our Wellington office.

Training & mentoring

You may have a team with a new member of staff and you want to ensure they are managing your social media correctly - we can come in and ensure they are up to speed with the latest social developments with our Two-hour Takeover sessions.

Many of our training clients bring us into their business every quarter to enhance the knowledge of the in-house teams. We cover whatever area you need in our Two-hour Takeovers and tailor each session to your business and its needs.

We can support apprentices and trainees to ensure they know what they should be creating for your business, or maybe you have a Kickstarter within the business who you want to train up in PR, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or Google My Business.

Would your staff know what to do and say in a crisis? The J&PR team can come in and host crisis communications training so you are safe in the knowledge they would know how to react in a crisis.

Perhaps you as the business owner, HR manager or marketing manager want to know more about specific areas of PR and social media management to ensure you can support your team adequately. We can host a Two-hour Takeover in your workplace in a specific area of your choice.

Staff training in-house can often leave people feeling pressured to still look at emails or answer the phones - but letting them escape the office for two hours means they can concentrate on the task - PR and marketing.

Your staff can come to our new offices on Church Street in Wellington for a Two-hour Takeover and be trained on a specific area from social media management, blogging, PR strategy, e-newsletters or event management.

J&PR is also an approved trainer of the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce and hosts the DIY PR and Social Media Training Courses.

Have you ever sent a member of your team on a course and they have returned with new knowledge but not specific to your industry? 

We create a bespoke training course for your business and industry - ensuring what they are learning is relevant at a time convenient to you and your team.

A half-day or a full day - we make it right for you.

If you've got 50 branches across the UK or partners across the globe, then a training session in Shropshire is not what you need.

J&PR offers virtual training to our clients enabling staff from across the globe to join the Two-hour Takeover.

We’ve been working with global brand Jesmonite which might be based in South Shropshire but has distributors and customers all over the world. Our industry-specific virtual PR and Social Media Training has allowed its worldwide partners to join us.

What our clients say


It has given my skill base an additional aspect. I will be discussing the need to have a ‘blog’ button on our new website.

I need to discriminate between press release news and more personalised stories which blogging will allow me to do. Great morning. Thank you.

Martin James



I like how Kirsty uses examples to make things understandable. She gives me confidence to blog and hopefully do it well! Great tips and free tools to use. Thank you.

Kirsty was a fabulous trainer as in the other courses I’ve attended with her.

Overall very helpful and inspiring. Thank you.

Joanne Philips

Learning more about press releases was very helpful along with tips for social media marketing and engagement. Using the plans will be great for time management and vary content.

Laura Partridge



Kirsty was really engaging and it’s obvious how enthusiastic she is, so it was easy to learn and pick up some tips.

Kate Southan

Westbury Environmental


Learning the current social media formats that are trending, learning more about PR, blogs and how they work within social media.

Clive Jones



I feel I now have a plan when I get back, rather than having a head in the hands moment! This has got to be a good thing – feel so much more confident. Thank you, Kirsty.

Melissa Hardy

Extremely helpful course. Covered all the main areas of digital PR from a beginner’s point of view. Lots to work on but looking forward to using everything I’ve learnt today.

Emma Cross



Learning how to structure plan. This can be applied to other parts of my role at FSP and I can see it being of great benefit in achieving our objectives.
