On Friday 2nd November, a group of sixth form students attending Reflect Digital – a conference focusing on careers within the digital world.
Along with Mr May and Miss McNamee, 15 students with a range of interests joined other schools in talks from professionals within Creative Media, Marketing, Analytics, HR and Advertisement. The day kicked off with an introduction to the day before a panel on university vs apprenticeships. Attendees then split into four groups depending on their preference: Development, Creative, Marketing or Client Management.
In addition to to presentations and career insights, there were opportunities for networking with providers, recruiters and companies, some of who were offering lots of work experience. Two versions of “Beer Pong” were playable (don’t worry, just ginger beer!), one of those being a VR version built by the team at Durty Media.
We would like to thank all the presenters who gave up their time to help inspire the next generation of digital influencers, especially Becky Simms at Reflect Digital who delivered Aspire through from idea and design.
