Welcome to Big Creative Training

As we prepare and plan for another academic year at Big Creative Training, we do so with the backdrop of the pandemic and all of the pressures and difficulties that this has placed on our students, staff and their families. With this context it makes the achievements of BCE and our students all the more remarkable and we thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.


The strength in how we have worked together to support our students is best reflected in our student surveys, where 98% stated that in the last academic year their learning experience was good or outstanding. This includes 16-18 students, adult learners and apprentices. At Big Creative Training we have again seen strong vocational achievement rates as well as record highs in GCSE maths and English GCSE achievement. Other highlights for our students included high profile trips and industry projects, and this academic year we are excited to announce international work placements across Europe for BCT students to broaden their life experience and personal development. From September 2021 we are happy to bring you our updated course offers from our Uplands House campus and the brand new ‘Digital Future’ campus, where we have invested £2.5m into industry standard software and equipment. The new campus is due to launch early 2022. Big Creative Training continues to develop its adult and apprenticeships offer, and we’re excited to offer apprenticeships in the worlds of music, media, events and marketing and brand new adult digital skills courses in media, digital marketing, music for film, VFX, DJ skills, graphic design and many more. Please do take the time to visit the BCE website for further information and access to a world of creative opportunities!
