Creative School is a 10-week course developed by, taught by and embraced by some of Australia’s top Creative Directors.
It not only helps you develop your creative skills, it puts you inside advertising agencies and in contact with the most senior creatives in the country: the very people who are looking to hire you, but who you would normally have to stalk just to get an interview.
Who should attend
- Current or aspiring junior copywriters or art directors
- Client-side marketers with a desire to learn more about how marketing and advertising work from a creative perspective
- People wanting to start a new career in creative agency
- A portfolio of your own ideas on seven or eight different briefs across multiple industries
- Conceptual thinking skills across multiple mediums
- Direct access to industry leaders and contacts to help you land a job
- Presentation skills
- The ability to create a genuinely big idea that will work across multiple mediums
Creative School runs two nights a week for 10 weeks.
Every Thursday, students attend a creative theory lecture. There’s a focus on learning the nuts and bolts of effective targeted marketing, plus case studies on the latest award-winning campaigns. Regular guest lectures from within the industry cover big ideas, the creative brief, presenting ideas and more.
Tuesday’s classes are more hands-on. Students divide into smaller groups and attend tutorials with an art director and copywriter in a real ad agency. Regular briefs and activities will also be given for you to exercise your creative thinking. This work will be assessed by a group of leading CDs which may pick you up an award or two.
- Two nights a week for 10 weeks
- Thursday evenings: a creative theory lecture.
- Tuesday evenings: tutorials with an art director and copywriter in a real ad agency.
At the end of the course, you’ll be armed with a portfolio filled with your own work, and a list of senior creatives who know you by name. It’s no wonder over a third of Creative School students are employed as a creative within just six months of graduating.
Students are required to submit seven or eight different briefs during the course, with feedback provided by Creative Directors. At the end of the course, your portfolio is assessed by a panel of industry leaders. Awards and industry exposure are given for Best Copywriter, Best Art Director and Best Overall Student.
