Bauer academy

At The Bauer Academy, we believe that the best way to learn is to do. We enable this through our industry-based training delivered by media experts across the UK.

 For individuals, we offer fully funded, flexible, hands-on training and we celebrate diversity.

Learning is a personal journey. We focus on the learner and deliver relevant, practical training which unlocks opportunities within the media industry but is transferable to other sectors too. Our students tell us that our training is life changing, and a raft of talented individuals have been employed by Bauer Media and other creative businesses since we launched The Bauer Academy in 2012.

For our business clients, the Bauer Academy offers uniquely creative, bespoke training solutions. Whether navigating through a period of change, or looking at the latest ways to communicate a multi-platform message, we can help businesses to upskill their teams.  The Bauer Academy is also a Government approved Apprenticeship Provider and can deliver Apprenticeship training standards across media, creative, digital and leadership, uniquely customised to your business and delivered in the most creative and engaging way. 

And for Bauer’s advertising clients the Academy offers a unique way to engage with their audiences. Our creative industry-based training can be customised to promote campaign messages and generate excellent media content that is shared peer to peer, providing an authentic voice for brands.
