Industry Connections

plugged into the industry

‘I think what Access Creative College is doing
for education is exactly what the industry needs.
They are finding and nurturing real talent, with industry-relevant experience, and encouraging creativity and self-exploration.’

We work with national and local festivals, games companies, studios, managers, talent agencies/shows, manufacturers and retailers. Here is a selection of our national partners.

We work with the CIF to provide work skills opportunities with hundreds of member creative companies.
