Birmingham Education Communications with Impact
PLMR BIRMINGHAM’S LEADING EDUCATION PRACTICE WORKS ACROSS THE SECTOR TO SUPPORT ORGANISATIONS COMMUNICATE THEIR VISION, FROM EARLY YEARS AND SCHOOLS TO UNIVERSITIES, EXAM BOARDS AND EDUCATION CHARITIES.
We deliver public relations, public affairs, crisis communications, digital communications and stakeholder engagement for our education clients. Our award-winning work has won campaigns for our clients, enabled them to grow and ensured they are best-placed with political decision-makers to achieve their objectives.
Our political and operational knowledge, with contacts at the Department for Education, inside 10 Downing Street and in the media, are second to none.
Our planning and built environment expertise has also helped schools and academy trusts navigate the planning system and engage with officers, councillors and residents to secure the planning permission they need. Our digital and design team has built numerous education websites, as well as providing brand and marketing advice, and run social media campaigns.
INFLUENCING POLICY FOR THE BETTER
PLMR Birmingham’s extensive contact network within the Department for Education offers our clients a platform to engage with existing and emerging policy. Working with our colleagues in Westminster, PLMR Birmingham often engages with Ministers and Whitehall as well as with local stakeholders and councils.
PLMR worked with awarding organisation, CACHE, to devise and execute a campaign which saw the Government reverse a key early years’ policy. The #SaveOurEarlyYears campaign secured a U-turn a year after our work started. In announcing the policy reversal, the government acknowledged that our grassroots campaign contributed to their decision.
AN AWARD-WINNING TEAM
The impact of our work in education communications has been recognised internationally. At the Cannes Lions Festival of International Creativity, we won two Gold Lions for Best Use of Media Relations and Best Use of Public Affairs.
At the Public Affairs Awards, we won an award for our #SaveOurEarlyYears campaign. And last year we scooped the Best Issues Management Award at the Corp Comms Awards for crisis communications relating to an academy trust.
