Creative Pioneers: National Apprenticeship Week Celebration

Join us as we bring together the Creative Pioneers community to hear about how to increase diversity, how to make the most of the new Advertising and Media Executive Standard and more.

Creative Pioneers: National Apprenticeship Week Celebration

As National Apprenticeship Week gets underway, we bring together our Creative Pioneers community. Employers, apprentices and industry supporters will get together to celebrate the great work that has been done over the past year and promote our new industry Advertising and Media Executive Standard.

It's the perfect opportunity to meet agencies on board already, along with former apprentices, representatives from Arch Apprenticeships and prominent figures who are raising awareness on the current apprenticeship landscape.

You will find out more about: 

  • How to increase the diversity of your agency by taking on apprentices
  • How to use the new Advertising and Media Executive Standard for both new recruits and existing staff, and how to make the most of your levy
  • The benefits of taking on apprentices from an employer's point of view
