Career Workshops

For 13+ yrs

Media Smart and OMG UK are excited to share a new interactive and educational workshop about the Advertising and Media Industry. The session will teach students about the kind of roles that exist, to experiencing first-hand what it’s like to work in an agency, through to thinking about their own relationship with ads.

By the end of the workshop, students should understand and appreciate:

• The scale of their exposure to advertising on a daily basis
• What agencies within the advertising and media industry do
• Some of the most common roles that can be found
• What ‘AdChoices’ is and how to activate it
• What kind of brief a media agency might expect to receive from a client
• The issue of greenwashing in advertising
• Tips to help them pursue a career in the advertising and media industry

It’s our hope that by engaging young people in the workshop, we can inspire them to consider the advertising and media industry as a potential and exciting career opportunity that is available and accessible to everyone.

The detailed resources will provide you with everything you need to facilitate the workshop yourself in the classroom.

And, if you represent an advertising or media agency, please get in touch with us, here, if you are interested in setting up your own school workshop programme to help educate – and recruit – the agency stars of the future!
