A record number of 369 applications were receivedto join the Spier Arts Academy. After an extensive selection and entrance examination process the top 32 candidates were selected and invited to join the Arts Academy team in 2013.

The latter half of 2012 marked the annual Academy Recruitment Campaign, where information of the available opportunities on offer at the Academy was distributed far and wide to invite all interested candidates to apply for a three-year full-time apprenticeship at the Academy.

The 2013 Recruitment Campaign kicked off with Open Days in August 2012, seeing over 150 prospective apprentices visiting the mosaic studio. Hundreds of posters and flyers, a radio interview on Bush Radio and a front-page feature in the Cape Times Career Times, also assisted in spreading the news of the apprenticeships on offer. The new apprentices have now settled in, and Spier is excited to play a part in their creative education.
