Creative Professionals Will Go To Great Length To Achieve Their Ambitions

We’ve launched our first Creative Futures report that sheds light on what people in the creative industries really think about training and what it means for their careers.

As well as the views of 250 creative professionals in the UK (working in arts, design, film, media and publishing), the report includes industry insight from the likes of The Mill and Double Negative and details the experience of creative professionals who have changed careers. Commentary from Skillset is also featured on why it’s important to keep your skills up to date.

What our Students Say

“When I wanted to switch from graphic design to visual effects, I knew I had some of the right skills, but if I hadn’t spent time retraining with Escape Studios I’d still be unemployed now. Its courses gave me the skills and knowledge I’d need to slot right into the industry, and its recruitment service helped me take those vital first steps in getting a job.”
Tom Baskaya, a former graphic designer now working at post production house Framestore.
