Who We Are

We offer a FREE 10-week programme for 18-25 year olds which delivers a premium learning experience for our students through a mixture of lessons and real-world advertising experience. We reach out to ‘under-represented’ groups in the creative industries (Multi-Cultural, Working Class, NeuroDiverse, Female) to find those with untapped potential.

Our big name industry sponsors create a pool of entry-level roles just for graduates of the course. Last year we delivered a 95% employment success rate.

Brixton Finishing School disrupts the way the Creative, Advertising, and Tech Industries recruit talent. We are an ‘end to end ‘ solution to the industry’s diversity challenges.
