Agent Academy are once again on the lookout for more talented young people who want to break into the creative and digital industry.
First things first, what do we actually mean when we talk about creative and digital?
Typically, in school we are made aware of ‘traditional’ job roles, such as teachers, doctors, lawyers and construction workers, to name a few. However, when it comes to the creative and digital sector, identifying job roles isn’t always that straight forward.
With the sector being so dynamic, continuously adapting to new opportunities, adopting new technologies and constantly innovating, standardised job titles can often be a bit too restrictive.
To give you more of an idea of the type of work carried out in the sector, maybe it will be helpful to throw out some ‘common’ job titles you might have heard of. For example, people working in this industry can be doing roles such as a digital marketer, graphic designer, web designer, motion design animator, UX researcher, strategist, video producer and many, many more.
How does Agent Academy support you to work in the creative and digital sector?
Agent Academy is a FREE training programme, which takes place over 2 days a week for 12 weeks. It is specifically designed for young people (18-25 years old) who want to work in this industry, but don’t quite know what role they want to do or how to get started.
We will teach you all aspects of working in a marketing agency, from strategy and design, to creative development, campaigning and web.
You might know exactly what type of job you want to do, or you might still be figuring it out.
This training will give you the opportunity to see what floats your boat and you can plan your future career with a team of experts.
What makes Agent Academy different to all other types of training?
We believe that being able to apply your skills is the most important part of learning. For this reason, you will be introduced to a client who will set a real-life creative challenge. As a group, you will apply all your learning to this specific challenge and present your ideas back to the client.
Alongside this hands-on learning, you will be introduced to industry experts and leaders, who will tell you about their roles in the industry, helping to develop your professional network.
To date, we have helped over 150 young people kickstart their careers in the industry and have seen many of them work their way to more senior positions, whilst still being a part of our ever-growing alumni network.
If you’re passionate about being creative and want to work in an exciting industry, then we want to hear from you!
Our next programme is starting in September. Apply here today and tell us a bit about you and why you want to be part of Agent Academy!
