It’s official; the AMASA Learnership Programme has been renamed to honour one of the greatest media advertising minds in the industry; the late Gordon Patterson. This announcement was made by Wayne Bischoff, Chairperson of the AMASA Committee in March 2017. “This media skills development course is the main reason AMASA exists, and its aim is to uphold the standard of Media Advertising in South Africa,” said Wayne Bischoff. Rebranding the course, The GORDON PATTERSON AMASA LEARNERHIP PROGRAMME’ (GP – ALP) was inspired by the remarkable contribution and impact that Gordon made in South Africa’s media advertising industry. The AMASA team looks forward to seeing the programme give inspiration to future industry leaders such as Gordon Patterson, and AMASA remains committed to sponsoring this programme to impact the industry positively.
Given the success of 9 candidates who received the GP – ALP Media Bursary in 2016, AMASA is proud to have supported the Class of 2016. The candidates showcased excellence through their performance and delivered great results.
