Why partner with CATC?
Lets’ just admit it: we love the design industry and they love us too!
If you have a love for giving back to the creative community - and something interesting to offer - then our students are all ears. Being connected to industry is a strong part of our philosophy, and we like to make sure that our students are at the forefront of industry trends, developments and opportunities.
Interested? Of course you are…
Here’s just a few ways that you can partner with CATC
Offer an internship
Need a hand on a new project, our students can’t wait to get into your studio.
If you’re a design industry mover and shaker thinking of taking on a new intern, or a local small business in need of some help from our talented design or photography students, we would love to hear from you. Here’s your chance to spot the brightest new talent and tap into the next-generation of commercially minded design industry professionals.
Be a guest speaker
Got something to share? Share it with CATC students.
CATC encourages connection with the wider design community through regular Think Talks where we invite industry professionals to speak with our students about what’s going on in their world. Interacting with students and the general public in this way gives you a chance to connect to a new generation of designers, immerse yourself in an enthusiastic environment and talk to an audience hungry to know more.
Festival of Change
Take part in our annual celebration of education, entrepreneurship and positive change.
Now in its second year, the Festival of Change is when CATC Design School gets together with other Think Education colleges to throw a party in the name of education. If you do something cool, this could be the prime soapbox for you to tell the world. Guest speakers, workshops, technology demonstrations, whatever; we’re always on the look out for new festival participants.

Speak with an Industry Advisor
Since commencing my role as industry advisor at Think Education I have been responsible for industry and clinic placements, alumni and industry relations, pod sponsorship and industry events on the Brisbane campus across five of the colleges under the Think Education banner; ACNT, ANCB, APM, BBCD and CATC. In my capacity as design industry advisor I have established industry placements with The Print Bar, Hannah Cutts Creative, CMD, Tinker Creative, Clemenger BBDO, RoundHouse, World Wide Printing, Strait Jacket Press and Open Minds. I am very excited about the future of placements in the design industry in Queensland with great feedback from our current industry partners and tremendous potential for future placements with new industry partners.
