TIPi Academy


January 13th-24th 2020

Applications are now closed

Keen to work in digital, advertising or marketing but don’t know what role you are looking for? Apply for our free two-week course – we’ll train you up in all disciplines, help you to find your slot in the industry, and if you’re lucky, find you that dream role within our company.


The TIPi Academy’s core goal is to introduce the students to a host of digital disciplines including PPC, SEO, Programmatic, Mobile, Display, Content Marketing, Paid Social, Amazon Marketing, and Data & Analytics.

As well as this, we teach more broadly applicable media disciplines such as Strategy and Insights and our partner agency, media brokers Electric Glue, have recently joined the programme to educate our pupils on Branding and Media Buying. This partnership adds to the offline dimension of the programme and gives our Academists a better-rounded view of the Media and Advertising industry.

As well as these technical skills and theoretical groundings, we also teach our Academists soft skills. Our Interview and Presentation training sessions give practical tips on how body language and speech can be harnessed to give yourself the best possible chance in a high-pressure situation.

The two-week deep dive takes place in our offices, so you can truly see what it would be like to work in an agency day-to-day and we hope at the end you’ll find the place in the digital ecosystem where you fit in best.


We recognise that we need to stay ahead of the curve if we want to attract the next generation of talent and onboard young, diverse and passionate individuals.

Aiming to break down barriers to entry in the sector, to debunk common misconceptions about our industry and inspire talent to find interests that give them the foundations needed to build a long-term career, we’ve realised that the best way to achieve this was to put the young people’s needs, rather than ours, at the centre of everything we do.

So, we built the TIPi Academy, a free educational programme designed to get you up to speed on all things digital and media.


You’ll walk away with the soft and hard skills that we believe will be invaluable as you enter the working world, as well as being armed with a rounded knowledge of the digital and advertising sector, and a fully formed idea of which role you are looking to secure. And, if we think you’re really awesome and we’ve got a role we think you’d love, then we might even offer you a full-time position at the end of the two weeks.

We’ll also give you a TIPi Academy Certificate of Completion and an industry reference. On top of this you’ll be taking your Google AdWords exams – of course we can’t guarantee you’ll pass these, but last year all of our Academists were successful, so we think you’ve got a decent chance.


Our ‘alternative’ learning and development programme is a fresh route we’ve built for entry into the industry, and this has been recognised in numerous awards and in the press for its innovative approach towards talent strategy.

Rather than relying on your CV, or a once chance interview, applicants will participate in a series of Q&A sessions, written tasks, networking opportunities, mock interviews and pitch simulations. The aim of this approach is  to enable you to show us a 360-degree view of your personality, interests and skills and to provide you with a truthful insight into what a junior position would entail.

Plus, 100% of our past attendees agreed that the course was more valuable than any work experience they’d previously undertaken.

What Our Graduates Say

    “I haven’t seen this kind of course or structure anywhere else, it’s a really great system! It was a great combination of theoretical classroom learning, alongside practical application and then a sort of simulation of what project work would be like in the culminating pitch we did to management.”

    Bebe Ross

    Paid Media Account Executive at ROAST

    “My favourite part of the course was the pitch challenge at the end. We were assessed by senior management – I really appreciated that they took the time to do this as their feedback was invaluable. It was also a totally new experience for me, I hadn’t done any presenting or selling at uni. At the beginning of the task, I barley had an idea of what we were actually being asked to produce, but by the end, I was shocked that I’d learnt so much and by what I could pull together for it!”

    Suzy Heath

    SEO Account Executive at ROAST

    “The main challenge I faced during the Academy was, as there were so many large personalities on the course, I sometimes struggled to speak out enough and ask the questions I wanted to. For that reason, I was so grateful to have the interview training and the drinks at the end of the Academy, as these provided great opportunities for me to interact one-on-one with many members of the TIPi Group and ask the questions I wanted to.”

    Sarah White

    Paid Media Account Executive at ROAST

    “An aspect of the course which I thought was extremely helpful was that all the speakers introduced themselves and their journey in the industry – helping us to see the different possible career paths available. They all gave some form of advice on life and finding the right job for you in general.”

    Hamid Khan

    PPC Account Executive at ROAST

    “Perhaps less a perception, but I was surprised by the technical aspects of digital marketing. Coming from a degree where things were mostly theoretical, learning about AI and the coding aspects that apply for many of the disciplines of digital marketing sparked an interest in me to further learn how to, for example, code – something I never thought I would say.”
