At the annual Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) Members Lunch, MediaCom Edinburgh was privileged to receive a special commemorative plaque to mark 10 years of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Gold Accreditation.
MediaCom Edinburgh has had a commitment to Continuous Professional Development (CPD) since the birth of the company 21 years ago and our talent has grown up with us in a culture of learning and development. Our business commits to learning and development by aligning ourselves with the IPA’s accreditation for CPD showing that we have employed creativity in building a vibrant learning culture to support real commercial objectives and go beyond regular working practices.
The results of our commitment to CPD speak for themselves : not only have we been awarded this 10 year accolade, we have now achieved the IPA’s elevated Platinum accreditation for CPD for the past 7 years. MediaCom Edinburgh is the only agency in Scotland to achieve this.
David Shearer, Managing Director, explains the importance of such a strong learning culture :
“We have a responsibility, as an agency and an employer, to create an environment that encourages employees to develop and adapt and manage the continual pace of our industry. We are absolutely delighted to receive this special honour by the IPA, marking our achievements over the past 10 years”.
