Here’s what the managers say about the education programme:

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday’s factory visit, both Dan’s came back really buzzing and learnt loads. It was a great day.”
Andrew Nash, Sussex Promotions.

Here’s what the learners say about the education programme:

“I started working for Essential Promotions with no experience in the promotional merchandise industry. Along with the expertise of my colleagues I found the BPMA education programme an excellent starting point to develop my knowledge. Being able to tailor the programme module by module is great as you can develop in the areas that are the most relevant to your experience and role. I would highly recommend this for any new starters within the industry and I’m looking forward to completing the CPM level.”
Sooz Holmes, Essential Promotions (TPM)
