Pressburst is an online communications platform for publicising news, jobs and events. Pressburst is now used by over 500 independent schools to compose news stories, list job vacancies or highlight forthcoming events.
With Pressburst, you only need to upload your content once - you can then publish it to a growing number of exclusive channels, as well as directly to your own website, Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Pressburst radically simplifies the process of creating, publishing and promoting news stories to the media. As well as guiding you through the composition of the story, Pressburst simplifies social media, enabling you to post directly to your Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as creating a professional press release.
Pressburst makes listing and managing job vacancies easy. You can quickly and easily upload all the information, choosing when to start promoting the job. The vacancy is listed on a number of exclusive Channel Partner job portals relevant to your organisation, and can also be integrated into your own website.
Pressburst helps you to gain as much publicity as possible for your forthcoming events. Add dates and events information fast and choose when to start promoting them. With integrated social media promotion, as well as via our exclusive Channel Partners, events gain maximum exposure.

Training courses from Attain
Building on the success and feedback from Pressburst Live, we are delighted to announce two dedicated training courses to help schools enhance their press and communications.
School Communications – Stage 1
The first course, to take place on Wednesday 9th October, is aimed at beginners or those wanting a refresher on managing communications for a school. It will focus on placing news in the local media, specialist magazines and online. It will cover all the essential ingredients of good quality news stories.
School Communications – Stage 2
The second course, to take place on Tuesday 4th February, is for those with more experience who want to develop their skills further and provides the perfect follow-on from Stage 1. The course will focus on how to place content in the national media, the development of media strategies and how to become a trusted source for comment and opinion.
Both courses will be led by Matthew Smith, Editor of Attain and Rachel Kerr, Communications Manager, Girls' Schools Association and take place at Oxford Town Hall. Delegates will receive practical, hands-on training and leave equipped with all the necessary skills to improve their school communications.
To find out more, download the course brochure.
Each course costs just £99 per person (£79 for Stage 2 if also booking Stage 1) including a buffet lunch and all refreshments. To book, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place. As places are strictly limited, early booking before the Summer holidays is strongly recommended.
