Educating a new creative class

Partners

Partners

Our partnerships are invaluable for brands.
And they’re life-changing for students.

That’s why we’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to…

Brand partners

Brands always tell us they get a lot from our programmes, but they also give so much back. The students they meet don’t often have a career plan. They can’t see how to turn their creativity into a living. It’s the brand teams who set and sponsor tough briefs and mentor students during the process who help change that.

Thanks to all the brands who work with us and fund us. You’re an inspiration.

Creative partners

We can only give our students a glimpse of creative industry life with the help of our many partners who give their time, money, offices and minds to help us. Many are mentors throughout our creative camps, and helpful contacts long after our programmes end.

Thanks to all the agencies who work with us. You’re amazing.
