VisibleStart

INTRODUCING OUR COURSE FOR WOMEN AGED 45+

Brixton Finishing School collaborated with The Uninvisibility Project and the world’s largest advertising agency, WPP, to create a FREE course designed to help you break into (or back into) the Marketing, Advertising and Communications industry.

 

The 8 week course is a blend of online learning and experiences, in person live events and mentoring. It will teach you the basics of digital media and give you the confidence to go out there and land your first or next job.

 

WPP funded Visible Start to create a new pipeline of talent for the multiple agencies across their holding group. We ran a successful pilot course in October 2021 and 17 of our graduates have now joined WPP’s workforce in roles ranging from entry level new starters to senior level returners.

 

We are planning to run two Visible cohorts in 2022, dates to be announced.

"VisibleStart has been the best decision I have made for myself!"

 

"To be a part of the process was not only upskilling with in-depth content, but a huge confidence boost for myself and the group of women in my cohort"

 

"I felt work-ready again in my fifties and it feels amazing! Upon finishing VisibleStart I was equipped with skills, advertising and media knowledge and most importantly my zest for life was back"

 

"I thoroughly enjoyed the process from beginning to end, resulting in my perfect role in Programmatic. My manager and team have been so welcoming and super supportive. I feel incredibly lucky and I urge all women to sign up to the next cohort!"
