Following the latest advice from the UK government, we have closed the Talent 1st office, the Nottingham studio and all on-site school training until restrictons are eased. This action has been taken to protect our team members and students. 


Our team are now working from home and will be available to support our students and industry colleagues as usual by email or phone.
