School of Communication Arts announces new partnerships with five leading creative agencies
The most awarded ad school in the world, The School of Communication Arts (SCA), has recently welcomed five new sponsors into its partnership program, which is currently supported by over 100 of the UK’s top agencies.
By partnering with the SCA, each new sponsor will support and contribute directly to the training of a number of students who would otherwise lack the resources to gain entry to the creative advertising industry.
Approximately 30 per cent of each student cohort is funded through the generosity of the School’s agency partners. They play an important role in ensuring over 80 per cent of graduates find employment within six months of completing their course.
The success of the partnership programme can be attributed to the quality and training of the SCA’s alumni, which is exemplified by the school’s impressive and growing collection of awards.
In July, the SCA won 14 D&AD New Blood Pencils awards and three students earned a yellow, white, and black pencil for one entry. Winning a Pencil represents the very best in design and advertising and is a testament to the creativity and talent of those who earn it.
Marc Lewis, Dean of the School of Communication Arts, said: “I’m thrilled that these brilliant agencies have chosen to support our mission to offer much-needed opportunities to a diverse range of prospective students. We simultaneously prop up the ad industry while helping young creatives to achieve their dreams, and each new sponsor takes us a step closer to cultivating a system in which every participant – the School, our students, and the agencies who enjoy their talents – feels the benefits of a harmonious creative community.”
Based in Pop Brixton, the School of Communication Arts offers in-person and distance learning tuition which sees students build a creative portfolio, spend time on work placements in top agencies, and land first-class jobs in prestigious creative organisations.
