Leo Burnett's Summer School...

The man himself.

....has now opened. I've just had a note through from them.

Read more about them and the scheme below:

Leo Burnett is the most creatively awarded agency in the UK, and the group comprises Leo Burnett (integrated advertising) and its brand activation partners; Arc (retail and promotions), Lime (experiential), LeoSports (sports sponsorship consultancy), and Atelier (luxury style specialists), as well as newly acquired Holler (social and media) and Airlock (digital innovation).

Leo Burnett is seeking two account planning interns and three account handling interns to undergo a four week placement, starting in July. This will begin with a week’s full week’s induction and training, followed by 3 weeks working with a team on one of our high profile accounts.

The Leo Burnett Group is fully committed to the development of its talent, as demonstrated by the IPA Gold Accreditation for its CPD programme, and also by being voted the 39th
For further details of the Summer School and how to apply, please visit our Facebook page, and follow the tabs (live the night of May 4th) or refer to best company in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For 2011."

Best of luck with it, gang. (UPDATE: It originally stated the 27th of April, though I'm now reliably informed it'll be the 4th of May in the evening).

Out of curiosity, do you know if we are able to reapply to grad schemes after securing an entry level job in advertising, or would this be bad practice?

For example, if we were to accept a job offer at a smaller agency out of financial necessity, would we be able to apply to the larger agency grad schemes in September?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Anon - Yes, you can. However, the most sensible thing to do would be to apply whilst you are still at the agency in question; there's nothing to stop the grad scheme folks putting you onto the scheme.
