About British Academy of Jewellery

The British Academy of Jewellery is the UK’s leading independent training provider for the Jewellery Industry.

Since 1999 our ethos has been to create innovative, substantial training that ensures people coming through our programmes are equipped with the full professional skills, knowledge and acumen needed by the jewellery trade or to set up as a practising designer/maker.

The Academy are at the forefront of creating the next generation of jewellers, designers, artisans and designer/makers and have to date trained over 10,000 individuals, almost three quarters of whom are now working in the jewellery sector.

Each year members of our alumni win prestigious national and international awards for jewellery making, goldsmith skills, silversmith skills, CAD design and design. Our students on programme get the opportunity to create real collections to live briefs from jewellery businesses, the best of which goes into commercial production.

We help thousands of people a year make informed choices about getting in to creative careers - from young people still at school to older entrants to the trade who are switching careers – and everyone in between.
