Success story

Life at a leading media agency

Jemma was a digital apprentice at IPG Mediabrands. She regularly worked on exciting television campaigns for a wide range of clients, including some of the UK's leading brands.


The first Digital Marketer

I was given endless support from all the staff at Arch throughout the study side of my Standard [...] my apprenticeship has definitely been the best part of my education.
Conor Richards Digital Marketer Apprentice

Conor was England's first Digital Marketer to complete the apprenticeship, achieving a distinction. After sharing with his line manager that he enjoyed studying media, within a week he had filmed and edited a video of his CEO.

It’s turned me into an adult

Working with Arch has been helpful for me [...] I’ve had the help of some great personal advisors, they’ve helped me get on track with things like keeping up my professionalism in the workplace and helping me keep up with coursework
Joe Izatt Digital Marketer Apprentice

Joe was a Digital Marketing Apprentice at Agilisys where he worked in their Communications department. He's an advocate for apprenticeships, being featured in The Times and being invited to the launch of the Institute of Apprenticeships. 

An instant career change

Unlike university, an apprenticeship allowed me to have a career change almost instantly, gaining and applying knowledge in a new industry through hands-on experience.
Mila Myslov Data Analyst Apprentice

Starting off in the music industry, after deciding to change careers she began doing training courses to help her find her passion. Discovering that it was data, she became IPG Mediabrands' first data analyst apprentice. She was Arch's first data analyst to complete and she achieved distinction! 

Up-skilling yourself

Being out of education for 13 years, this [the apprenticeship] is just what I needed to gain the confidence that I can actually do it and to push further.
Chetna Kerai HR Consultant Apprentice

Chetna's employer is a not-for-profit that had little budget for training. She was able to gain her CIPD level 5 fully-funded through an apprenticeship. As an Assistant HR Business Partner, she's a great example that apprenticeships are for people in all stages in their career.
