A number of Marketing Derby Bondholders have been helping to inspire digital and creative industries students at Derby College Group by supporting a week-long series of events.

The DigiCreate Industry Week involved hundreds of young people studying a wide range of subjects from Art and Media to Esports and Games Development.

The students from the college’s Joseph Wright Centre attended a wide range of workshops, talks and taster sessions to help them explore future career opportunities.

Visits and projects included music students writing and performing their own compositions with the Sinfonia Viva orchestra, performing arts students working with Derby Theatre, and media students visiting the film studio facilities at the University of Derby.

Vanessa Simpson, digital academy manager at Derby College Group, said: “Industry Week is designed to inspire and engage young people as they explore their future higher education and career options.

“The chance to meet a wide range of professionals who kindly give their time and share their knowledge of what life is really like in their industry is a fantastic opportunity for all the students.”
