It is estimated that we will need 750,000 more digitally skilled workers by 2017, and 200,000 of these will be young people. So, Digital Day was born.
Aimed at 13-18 year olds, Digital Day explores the opportunities available to young people in this thriving industry. Now in its 5th year, we have worked with over 5000 students, hundreds of schools and agencies and as we continue to grow, isn’t it time we worked with you too?Why is it important?
A free initiative for both schools and agencies, Digital Day sees digital practitioners head back to school for the day on 15 November to mentor and educate students on the careers available in digital. The morning comprises fun games and presentations to explore the job roles available, whilst the afternoon sees mentors help students to complete one of three sponsored challenges to be entered into our nationwide competition.
