Ukrainian Nationals to Benefit from Free Access to Three IPA Qualifications

Ukrainian Nationals to Benefit from Free Access to Three IPA Qualifications

The IPA is offering those impacted by the conflict in Ukraine access to three qualifications for free through a collaboration with the EACA, the VKR (All-Ukrainian Advertising Coalition), Polish Marketing Communication Association SAR and IPA learning partner in the Baltics, KOG Institute.

Ukrainian nationals be able to benefit from free access to the IPA Commercial Essentials Certificate, IPA Effectiveness Essentials Certificate, and IPA Foundation Certificate qualifications to help them continue their professional development throughout the crisis.

Says Indre Dragunaite, Head of Learning Technologies, IPA: “The war in Ukraine is deeply shocking and upsetting. At an IPA level, we hope that our small offer of some free IPA learning for Ukrainian nationals and our support of wider industry initiatives may provide some help to those enduring the toughest of times.”

“Education is the foundation of everything we do, regardless of the industry and field of specialisation. There has been an impressive mobilisation across Europe to help Ukrainian people find places to stay and work. We encourage those who are looking to join the advertising & communications industry or simply brush up their existing knowledge and experience to participate in IPA’s qualifications for free. Thank you IPA for making this possible. On behalf of EACA, I would like to let interested Ukrainian nationals know that they can reach out to us at any time for any questions they may have – we are here to support you”, added Tamara Daltroff, EACA’s Director General.
