D&AD New Blood Shift

Talent isn’t about where you’ve been, or who you know. And it’s not about having a university degree, either. It’s about raw ability – and opportunities.

D&AD have joined forces with Google for another round of New Blood Shift – an industry-led night school for self-made creatives looking to get into the advertising and design industry. This 4-month, part-time programme will give you the chance to work with global brands (and be introduced to multiple creative agencies) to answer creative briefs, culminating in a showcase to introduce you to the industry, with one main goal: to get you hired.

Official deets:

New Blood Shift London is for any UK resident over 18 that isn’t either enrolled in a degree course or haven’t previously attained one, but are looking to break the design/advertising industry. 

You’ll need to be a UK resident and be able to commit to 2 evening classes per week, plus occasional weekends from June – September.

And the best bit? It’s FREE. The deadline for applications is 26 April 2021
