Who We Are

Brixton Finishing School disrupts the way the Creative Industries recruit talent.

We are an ‘end to end ‘ solution to the Creative Industries diversity challenges.

We provide a free, 12-week, premium learning experience, delivering creative and digital skills and real-world advertising experiences. We prepare our students for a pool of entry-level roles available just for them or for jobs in the wider industry.

Diverse teams deliver businesses a competitive advantage. Different types of thinking mean new perspectives, fresh ideas and better advertising/creative work.

We conduct outreach into groups ‘under-represented’ in the creative industries (BAME, Working Class, NeuroDiverse, Female) to find those with untapped potential.

They attend this unique course that blends workplace experiences and multiple expert masterclasses with digital marketing and training in winning office behaviours.

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.

Testimonials from our 2018 students

"If you're thinking about getting into media but unsure if it's right for you, this course is just as much a journey of self-discovery as it is a journey into the industry."

2018 Student

"It’s a great opportunity to launch yourself into the industry and meet incredibly inspiring people."

2018 Student

"It is probably one of the best work experiences I’ve ever had. One which does not consist in making coffee for anyone. You are truly getting yourselves stuck into the advertising world and learning the skills required for it.
