VCCP: JFDI planning the story of VCCP Stoke Academy

Integrated communications agency VCCP created awareness of the ad industry and contributed more than £1m to the local economy through its vocational training offering in Stoke.

Executive Summary

Agencies are in the midst of a diversity crisis - one that favours the South-East of England's higher-educated middle class.

This narrowness is a lose-lose. Talented people miss out on career opportunities, and clients get work developed in a bubble.

Enter VCCP Stoke Academy.

The result of a passing conversation between a creative and strategist that they kept revisiting.

The output of a belief that we could broaden the socio-economic diversity of our talent, improve the work of our industry, and give brilliant people outside the M25 the opportunity to thrive in a creative career.

We’re long-term subscribers to WARC and it’s a tool we use extensively. We use it to source case studies and best practice for the purposes of internal training, as well as for putting persuasive cases to clients. In compiling a recent case for long-term, sustained investment in brand, we were able to support key marketing principles with numerous case studies sourced from WARC. It helped bring what could have been a relatively dry deck to life with recognisable brand successes from across a broad number of categories. It’s incredibly efficient to have such a wealth of insight in one place.
