What is Digital Day?
A free initiative for both schools and agencies, Digital Day takes place on 14 November and sees digital professionals head back to school for a day to inspire secondary students (13-16 years), give them insight into the depth and breadth of careers available, offer practical advice on how to get into digital, and gets hands-on experience tackling challenges from our awesome brand sponsors.
What happens on the day?
The day is split into two halves and designed flexibly, to work around a normal school day.
In the morning – digital professionals introduce their world of work to the students, sharing their own career experiences whilst providing insight into the breadth of careers available in digital.
In the afternoon - our nationwide competition. Competing for fantastic prizes, students work in teams to complete one of our sponsored challenges with guidance from the digital professionals. The final solutions are then submitted back to BIMA for our judging panel to decide which groups will be crowned the Digital Day Champions 2017. Download the agenda.
