Break Into Advertising with Open Doors and IAPI

Open Doors is delighted to be partnering with IAPI (Institute of Advertising Practitioners in Ireland) for the second year of our Break Into Advertising Programme! Our first year in 2021 was a huge success, with 4 out of 5 participants going on to find employment across a number of sectors after completing the programme. Both the industry professionals involved and the participants felt they gained a huge amount from taking part and discovered opportunities they never anticipated at the start.
