Digital Advantage have been in school recently which has inspired and motivated our students with a real experience of the digital work place.
Digital Advantage is an award winning CIC that delivers innovative work experiences to young people of all ages and abilities. The industry-led programmes accelerate technical, creative and business skills to reveal the hidden talents of young people.
The programme has been accessed by predominantly sixth form students with two additional KS4 pupils who have been making outstanding progress in IT and media.
All pupils have worked incredibly hard to set up their very own digital business tackling current issues and problems with young people and the time they spend in front of a screen.
By the end of the week the team created a business idea, a brand, a promotional video, website with blogs and a social media campaign. The students pitched their business idea to specially invited students and teachers and answered question.
All pupils made amazing progress and gained so much confidence throughout the process. The project will continue to develop their app and their skills further.
