Digitech helps students to exciting destinations

September 02 2020

DIGITECH Studio School is celebrating record university entrants and some "truly unique and exciting" apprenticeships and courses.
The specialised creative digital and high-tech school in Kingswood, working in partnership with creative industry training provider Boomsatsuma, had 120 students following specialist diploma pathways. The average grade for all diploma course students was a distinction, or higher.
A spokesman said: "At this unusual time, where students’ school experience has been so severely disrupted by the pandemic, the most important consideration is ensuring that each student has the very best and most appropriate destination secured, and this is where Digitech’s Studio School approach, with its specialist pathways and close links to industry, has come into its own.
University and higher education destinations for Digitech students include London's Trinity Laban music and dance conservatoire, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and Italia Conti Drama School, computer science and cyber security courses at UWE, Swansea and Bath Spa universities, illustration and arts courses at Plymouth and Falmouth universities and sports journalism at the University Campus of Football Business at Wembley Stadium.
Students were successful in securing apprenticeships with Netflix, the National Youth Film Academy and Natural History Production. Others moved on to degrees and employment in other fields . Students also did well at GCSE level, gaining the qualifications they needed to take them on to  the next steps in education or apprenticeships. Digitech offers diplomas and diploma combinations in multidisciplinary art, IT, acting, media and games development.
