Barking & Dagenham – Digital & Creative Industries
With the growing demand for digital and creative skills, Barking and Dagenham College opened its Digital & Creative Industries Career College in September 2015. The professional and technical training has been designed by employers to ensure that young people have the right skills for the many jobs out there. Students are offered a number of digital pathways including games, animation, coding and programming and software development. Employers including Archant, ShoNet (Salesforce.com Partners) and Technopop are supporting the project. Students benefit from enhanced access to these digital, tech and creative industry employers, enabling them to find out exactly what businesses are looking for in terms of new recruits and the range of jobs available.
