A record 1,113 junior adlanders sat the IPA Foundation Certificate on Monday (16th February 2015) from London to Bournemouth, Leeds, Manchester, Filleigh and Scotland. Since its launch in 2003, 7903 people have sat the exam.


It is the industry’s key entry level qualification intended for anyone working in an agency, regardless of discipline, that provides them with the knowledge to perform their roles with confidence and expertise and. The certificate involves the completion of an online learning programme, taking participants through the entire brand communications process which is followed by the offline examination.

UK delegates will find out their results in May. The Foundation Certificate will also be taken internationally with delegates signed up in Australia and New York.

Says Patrick Mills, Director of Professional Development, IPA, “It is wonderful to see this award-winning industry qualification become an integral and critical part of agency graduate and new starter programmes, and it is exciting that this year even more marketing executives from clients are realising the value of the Foundation Certificate. This high quality, relevant and topical programme is down to the exceptional contributions from our agency members who both devise and write its content.
