Advertising Design   From 1st January all RCT adverts will run using the new
                     advertising style. This will ensure that all RCT adverts have
                     a strong visual impact and an instantly recognisable brand
                     in the main media.
                     Below and on the following page are examples of how these
                     adverts will work in mono and colour. Sizes will vary.

Advertising Process   In order to make the advertising process as seamless as possible,
                      to minimise room for error and to ensure you receive costs

                      1. Complete advertising request template for media
                         choice and advert content, ensuring it contains full

                      3. Within approximately 8 working hours you will receive
                         a set proof with costs for approval.
                      4. Approve advert copy and costs within

                      6. Invoice will be issued with a voucher copy of the advert.

Advertising Deadline   In order for the adverts to be set, costed and approved before
                       the publication deadline, all adverts now have one deadline.
                       All adverts must be with The HR Unit by

                    which attracts 389,000 unique users per week (November
                    2006). Advertising on this website increases the number
                    of people who will see and, therefore, could respond to
                    your advert.
                    There are three advertising options available:
                    • Bronze option: text only advert for four weeks online.
                    • Silver option: text advert with option to add on school logo,
                      photo and application documents. Silver adverts appear higher
                      in the search results list than bronze adverts and are viewed
                      approximately 5 times more.
                    • Gold option: creative entry, which is designed in brand with
                      the school and contains detailed information. Gold adverts
                      appear at the top of the search results list and are viewed
                      approximately 10 times more than the bronze adverts.

Cost Comparisons       The advertisements below demonstrate the difference between
                       a typical RCT paper-set advert (the advert style that has run
                       to date), and how this can be redesigned into the new style,
                       resulting not only in a more visually impactful advert, but also
                       a much more cost effective one.
