Event description
Our new Academy Sprint taking place over 1 week. Exciting opportunity for 18 content design students. CPD certified.

About this event

Many talented content people are missing out on content design work because they don’t have the right ‘hands-on’ experience. We are changing that.

This is our fifth academy and we are giving 18 students the opportunity to run a complete content design project.

The Content Design Academy combines the learning of our training with practical work. All our techniques are based on best practices developed on projects we have worked on over the past decade.

The course

This hands-on intensive course will give you the chance to complete a real-life content design project for a charity guided by industry-leading experts. Over 1 week, you will be working on content discovery, production and planning.

We will walk you through all the aspects of a content project:

1. understanding your audience,

2. writing targeted content,

3. measuring success.

Who it's for and what to bring

You should:

  • have some experience in content - journalism, tech author, copywriter etc all fine – you don’t need to be a content designer,
  • be able to attend the course all 5 days,
  • bring your own laptop,
  • have access to Google docs.

Free course place (applications now closed)

We give away 1 free place on this course for someone from a background that's underrepresented in the content design industry.

We do this on a first come first serve basis. We are a small team and can only consider the first 15 applications. We will email the successful candidate at least 2 weeks before the course. Fill in this form to tell us why you feel underrepresented.

Testimonials from previous academy students

The weekly sessions were well structured and seamlessly delivered by Hinrich and the team. The students were obviously highly engaged and the variety of the sessions built on each of their professional strengths. They learned why content design is important, how to create and design content and how to hone and perfect their content.

---

The biggest change for me has come from seeing a content design process through from discovery to production with a client. I can talk about that process with a lot more clarity. Advocating real investment in content design, championing user needs in client meetings is carrying more weight because of that increased knowledge. I’m starting to find my feet with those ‘tricky conversations’ with stakeholders who are struggling to see the value in good content practices.

---

The community of support from content designers and fellow alumni of the academy has been amazing. I’ve never been on a course where the whole class were as enthused and engaged with what we were learning. Throughout there was a willingness to share and help each other get the best very out of it and that’s continued on since. In short, it was wholly memorable and valuable in lasting ways.

---

The Content Design London Academy has been massively impactful for me in my content design career. I went from being a content strategist fighting to establish a content design practice at my company, to being a freelance content designer with some great clients, to now being a senior content designer at a large European bank.

---

It gave me the skills and practical experience to solidify the theory I already had, and I've been able to use the Academy project as an example of my work to clients and my new employer. It also opened me up to a great network of other content designers - one of whom became a client of mine - and the course paid for itself within only a few months.
