Message from the Managing Director of Big Creative Training
The journey began in 1999, when I first started teaching event promotions to a small group of young people in East London. Fourteen years on and not only are we changing lives through Big Creative Training but we can now extend our vision of transformative education through Big Creative Academy – a school for creative and media excellence in London.

Our journey has been an intuitive one based on the principle that young people who want to get into the creative industries are more likely to succeed if they have access to great facilities and are taught by inspirational teachers with industry knowledge and experience. This formula has worked at Big Creative Training and slowly but surely we have created a strong reputation for delivering high quality courses and providing a stimulating environment that supports and respects our learners. One of the most rewarding tasks was tracking down former Big Creative learners for the case studies that we wanted to highlight. These former learners still have vivid memories of their learning experience at Big Creative and how it helped them to realise their career ambitions. It was a proud moment to see how far they have progressed and to hear about their amazing jobs and careers, since graduating from Big Creative Training.

The media and creative industries are a massive sector for the UK and we produce some of the most talented music producers, artists, fashion designers, filmmakers and event producers in the world. Big Creative intends to contribute to this UK success story. I would like to thank all of the passionate and dedicated people that have worked at Big Creative Training over the years and have helped to foster its development as a leader in the sector. Finally, I would like to thank you for your interest in Big Creative and I hope you will choose us as the place to start your journey towards a brilliant career.
