So last week I was on a panel (I know, me, ha) to discuss Liverpool’s creative skills – after I took a course back in Jan. I had no idea there was a problem, until noticing I’d been studying here for 3 years, yet always gone to London or Manc for experience. Liverpool is famous for music, art, history! Why not here?
Gone are the days when ad training only existed in London. This past decade has seen a shit ton of creative aid pop up outside of the capital, or at least on the internet. Yes, it’s hard to believe when many seniors simply suggest schemes that exist down south, which are of course fabulous, but not something everyone can afford or travel to when just starting out (me).
Most training isn’t just for students, and can be attended any time. So, don’t get into a strop about how you’ll never get into the industry because you’re oh so deprived whilst 'stuck' up North (again, me). I’ve found lots of similar stuff going on up these ends to tide you over in the meanwhile.
