We’re committed to encouraging talent into the industry by delivering world-class animated-related courses. Whether you’re a professional with an established career or beginning to find your way into the industry, our courses, which range from day-long Gateway to Industry courses, to our Industry Training three month long modules, all offer access to support, guidance, teaching and mentorships and are devised and run by experienced animation professionals with a track record for excellence in their chosen field.

In the film and TV industry, over 80% of all jobs are awarded to friends, family or colleagues, and we want to change that. The Aardman Academy offers outstanding courses and skills-development programmes at a price which opens up a career in our industry to everyone. After every course, each participant is invited to join our active alumni where we share opportunities, jobs and support. We care about making our industry inclusive, supportive and incredible.

Aardman is employee-owned and exists for the benefit of its workforce and the industry we’re passionate about. Our strong set of values sits at the heart of all that we do.

The Aardman Academy was set up to nurture talent and to build sustainable careers and is a not for profit enterprise.
