Free Online Course (plus laptop) at The School of Communication Arts The School of Communication Arts Programme: SCA was founded in 2009 with a commitment to seek out the best creative talent and nurture them to become the next generation of advertising superstars. As a portfolio school, SCA is supported by over 100 of the top advertising agencies that donate money to fund scholarships and provide mentoring for students.
What’s the programme all about?
SCA will run a 12-month advertising online course for 15 scholarships, where young people will be taught by faculty members and a network of over 1,000 advertising industry mentors in a welcoming environment. To make the programme inclusive for all, everyone will receive free laptops to complete industry related coursework that will prepare you for a fast-paced career in advertising. All fees will be covered by our partner Stride.
What are the key benefits of the programme?
Aspiring creative superstars will attend online classes and lectures daily and be provided with practical coursework to complete in groups or individually. Much like in a real agency, you will receive campaign briefs and have to work precisely to the client’s requirements. You will have to prepare presentations up to fully commercial standards and quality during the course of the programme to prove your understanding of the client’s needs. After all the hard work is done, you’ll leave with the opportunity to showcase your success at the annual Portfolio Day event where hundreds of advertising industry professionals scout out fresh talent, usually leading to a highly sought after placement or job.
Who’s the programme for?
This programme is perfect for you if you’ve always dreamt of working in the fast-paced world of advertising. You can apply for this programme as long as you’re between the ages of 18+ and live in Lewisham or Wandsworth.
