Course content

The world of advertising is fuelled by bright minds and creative thinkers. It generates millions of messages that reach consumers via an ever-increasing number of channels.

There are around 14,000 people employed in UK advertising, yet at its heart, only some 8% of employees are what are known as “creatives”. These are the art-directors, copywriters and planners who are the creative powerhouse of the industry.
