The Scholarship Alumni

Since The Marketing Academy launched in February 2010 almost 150 Scholars have completed the free, year-long Scholarship Programme. Since that date the Alumni of the Scholarship programme have utilised the skills and knowledge they’ve learnt to move into increasingly senior roles, take on bigger projects and have often taken the leap to start their own businesses.

In September 2015 The Marketing Academy launched an Alumni programme to ensure that all former Scholars can continue to make the most of The Marketing Academy by accessing our inspirational learning and speakers as well as continuing to benefit from one of the strongest networks they have available to them, each other.

Each year The Alumni Programme includes two half day Boot Camp’s, two social evening’s, regular newsletters and additional learning opportunities.  We are thrilled that Royal Mail’s MarketReach are partnering with us on the programme to ensure that we can deliver a cohesive and useful learning and social alumni experience.
