Getting your Foundations Right

Content creation is a multifaceted discipline which utilises digital skills to tell stories (personal or commercial). Skills needed are the ability to break down large projects into bite sized pieces, the ability to capture images and photos professionally and the capacity to bring it all together.
With so many amazing and creative children out there this class sets them up with a solid foundation on which to explore creative tech.
Setting solid foundations helps our children develop the soft skills they need to excel in this space, we also help illuminate career pathways into digital and creative tech throughout our programme.
