Learn more about Digital Day

Welcome to the Digital Day Resources Hub for schools and agencies

Digital Day is the only initiative of its kind, giving 11-16 year olds an insight into a world of digital careers. Here you will find everything you need to learn more about the digital industry.

What is Digital Day?

It’s a day that brings digital to life. And if previous years are anything to go by, it’s a day that changes lives. Not so long ago, 95% of BIMA members told us a lack of skills was holding back their growth. The Centre for Economics and Business Research agreed, saying the shortage of tech and digital talent is costing the UK £21.8bn.

Pandemic aside, digital has been growing at twice the rate of the broader economy. But unless we fix the skills shortage, that can’t continue. Digital Day works for schools. It works for students. It works for the sector as a whole in encouraging more young people to discover the potential of a digital career. And with every passing year, it matters more than ever.

Digital Day Parents Evening

Watch the first BIMA Digital Day parents evening to discover what a career in digital could look like for your children.

Every November, we visits around 200 schools to run an interactive workshop in order to inspire students to think about a career in digital. Every year the students leave the day excited to learn more, but we want to ensure that inspiration lives on when they get home.

We are now launching online webinars so the parents and children can join together. We cover the types of jobs available, salaries and culture. And of course routes into the jobs themselves.
