Marketing Academy launches apprenticeship event

The Marketing Academy, the non-profit mentoring organisation of which Marketing Week is a founding partner, is putting on an event aiming to raise money for its Merlin’s Apprentice Fund.

The Marketing Academy

The Marketing Academy’s one-off event, The Art of Curiosity: Why marketing and marketers matter, which takes place on 19 May 2014, is bringing together speakers including Andy Duncan, managing director of Camelot and Katie Vanneck-Smith, chief marketing officer at News UK, to offer advice on diverse areas of career development, such as leadership and building personal networks.

Merlin’s Apprentice is a partnership with The Prince’s Trust to create a £1m fund to create 50 fully paid apprenticeship schemes for 18-24 year olds who are not currently in employment, education and training. Each time the fund hits a certain limit, the Marketing Academy hires a new apprentice. The importance of brands hiring marketing apprentices was covered in Marketing Week earlier this month.

You can buy tickets for the event here – all money raised will go towards the apprenticeship scheme. The Marketing Academy will also be supporting this year’s Marketing Week Live.
