Offering apprenticeships in advertising

Creative Skillset is offering a new Higher Level Apprenticeship in advertising and marketing communications, to give young people the chance to gain a career in advertising.

Agencies will be able to harness new talent and train employees at a low cost. The course has been designed by advertising and marketing executives and apprentices will gain a level four qualification, which equates to a foundation degree. As more advertising agencies sign up, it is hoped that applications through agencies will become the standard recruitment method.

Jane Saunders, of Creative Skillset, said: “A young person can apply directly to us directly, by expressing interest on our Facebook page or through an employer. The advertising community is embracing it. Before this, most people who wanted to get into advertising had tried by applying to related schemes, naturally there is a lot of industry crossover. The formula can be moulded, it’s flexible. This is an attractive proposition.”
