Junior Creative Apprenticeship

How we help you

NEW

Launched on 30th June 2020, the brand new Junior Creative apprenticeship scheme seeks to diversify creative departments in advertising and marcomms agencies. The Level 3 Junior Creative Apprenticeship Standard has been approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education and will be facilitated by Ravensbourne University London, with tutors from industry backgrounds.

Ravensbourne University London (RUL) is an innovative, industry-focused university. We're champions of creativity and collaboration, dedicated to giving our learners the specialist skills and opportunities they need for outstanding careers in digital media and design. 

Ravensbourne also hosts alongside its student community more than 100 creative technology businesses that utilise its leading edge technologies and media resources, and collaborate with its student body and industry partners.

Most of the training will be carried out remotely to allow people and agencies from across England to take part.

The 18-month-long programme will comprise 14 modules covering topics such as taking creative briefs from account planners; understanding client requirements; amending and redeveloping ideas; working with specialist producers; and managing tight deadlines with busy schedules and multiple projects. 

Participating agencies will be able to fund either a new starter or upskill a current employee into a creative role through the Apprenticeship Levy, a UK tax on employers that funds apprenticeship training. Agencies that do not pay the levy can still share the cost of the scheme with the government, which funds up to 95% of training under its apprenticeship service. 

The scheme will require a collective commitment from agencies to achieve the required cohort of 25 individuals to start their apprenticeships in September this year.
