With Digital Day approaching, we are proud to announce that two fantastic companies are partnering with our sponsor Epam, to issue this year’s thought-provoking challenges that will put students nationwide to the test.
As two of the leading companies in their fields, we are thrilled to have Primark and Royal Mail Group involved this year and we cannot wait to see what they have in store for the students.
“The brief we use in Digital day is so important in making the day a success, we saw that first hand when WWF provided us with the amazing sustainability brief last year. It’s important we use brands that most students are familiar with so it adds a touch of realism to the whole experience. We’re delighted that we have two of the UKs most recognised brands taking part in 2022. A huge thanks to everyone involved!” says Matt Sullivan, BIMA’s MD.
Keep an eye out for the challenges when we announce them in a few months on our official Digital Day webpage.
What is Digital Day?
Digital Day is a free initiative that brings digital to life. Thousands of 11-16 year old students get to meet and learn from real digital professionals, and work together on a sponsored, nationwide digital challenge for a chance to win £500 cash for their school and some fantastic prizes for themselves.
It’s a day to learn new skills, gain confidence and boost awareness of opportunities within the digital industry.
Digital Day works and leaves lasting impact on students
Digital Day is all about the impact it has on students and their aspirations.
Last year we asked students to complete a survey before and after the day and we’ve seen first-hand how this initiative helps to raise awareness of careers within digital, how students feel more prepared for the future and how both their confidence and interest in the industry increases after spending the day with digital experts.
