Introducing our new free virtual courses open to all 18 - 25 year olds across the UK.

Our mission has always been to break down barriers and give entry-level talent from working class, multicultural and neurodiverse backgrounds a fairer chance to succeed.

In response to Covid-19, our founder Ally Owen, set up The AD-Cademy – a nationwide gateway into the industry. With “Work From Home” becoming the norm, we realised location is rarely discussed barrier to accessibility, to the right training, experience and opportunities. The AD-Cademy seeks to support voices from outside London and get them into our industry.
