Net Natives are incredibly pleased to announce their programmatic advertising partnership with The partnership provides education institutions with unique access to the world’s fastest growing media platforms, with highly targeted audience groups.

eMarketer predicts that Amazon will generate $1 billion in ad revenue in the US in 2017. And Martin Sorrell considers Amazon to be the most significant player to enter into the market in years.

However, until now, Amazon’s retail space has not been accessible to education marketers. The partnership announced today with Net Natives, the first education specific advertising agency to be accepted onto the Amazon Advertising Platform, means that hyper-targeted, brand safe, programmatic advertising across the world’s largest retailer (and other relevant consumer websites, notably IMDb) is now available to every education institution in the UK.

Net Natives and Amazon have worked closely to build unique education-specific audience data segments that can be used exclusively to attract students. 

As well as tracking who is in-market for the top 500 A-Level textbooks and unique access to Amazon Student program data, Net Natives will partner with Amazon to build subject-specific targeting based on Amazon’s real-time view of students who are browsing and purchasing subject specific books - from A-Level subject books to GMAT study guides.

The Net Natives and Amazon partnership combines the latest in creative HTML5 advert design with Amazon’s programmatic technology across their whole digital portfolio.

How does it work?

In the example below, a UK university is promoting undergraduate nursing courses.

Net Natives used exclusive audience profiles for potential nursing undergraduates, built in partnership with Amazon and their incredible CRM. Net Natives were able to serve highly targeted ads to consumers they know are actively buying products related to their education ambitions, and also fit the behavioural profile for someone who is planning to go to this institution and study in this field.

Innovative HTML5 creative adverts are served on products that are directly related to the audience profile (for example nursing training guides) but also related products too (such as A Level Health and Social Care study guides). Your adverts will also be served to your targeted audience segment on the main Amazon homepage, through impactful display ads. The unique audience data-set can also be used to target audiences on other publisher websites programmatically through all the major ad exchanges (in this example and across some of the world’s most popular websites (including IMdB, Amazon owned and one of the world’s biggest websites).

In doing so, your institution reaches the right audience at the right time to influence your prospective students during the decision making process, on a space where there is little-to-no competition from other institutions with the same message.

As part of this pioneering partnership, clients working with Net Natives will have access to the Amazon platform with much lower minimum campaign spend levels, meaning Amazon can be a part of your marketing mix, even if you don’t have a huge budget.

Don Skinner, Chief Operations Officer at Net Natives said:

“Our partnership with Amazon means that every client in the education sector will have access to this incredible audience and portfolio. Not only that, but it means that Net Natives can continue to lead the drive for putting brand safety at the heart of programmatic advertising.”

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
