drpdigitalmedia present at In-Sight Event at Kidderminster Academy

drpdigitalmedia team
Local Worcestershire based communications agency drpgroup offered support and advice at Kidderminster Academy’s In-Sight Event. Stuart Lee, a developer in the drpdigitalmedia team, provided 3 separate sessions with 15 students in each group.

Each session focused on game development and was presented to year 9, 10 and 11 students who had shown or expressed an interest in working in the digital industry. It was a chance for the students to gain real insight into the key factors of game development and the different roles and responsibilities within a digital team.  

The drpdigitalmedia team is continuing to build and develop their relationship with the local academy. The drpgroup is always looking at ways in which it can speak with potential new recruits to the industry, with the opportunity to be able to recruit for their own team. They have already successful taken on 3 apprentices from the local area, who have since become full time team members. Lee provided an activity for the students to take part in, introducing them to basic scratch programming as he explains “speaking at Kidderminster Academy was a great opportunity to meet the next generation of up and coming developers and tell them about what we do within drpdigitalmedia. The students were all really engaged and showed a great passion and aptitude for all things digital.”  

Dan Brown, 15, a pupil from Stourport High School, said:  “I didn’t really know much about what courses were on offer at The Academy but I’m really interested in games design and how they are put together.  I’ve been learning about coding at school but would like to learn more and I’m thinking of applying for a course here now that I’ve seen the facilities.  It was also really useful to hear about what kind of jobs are available in the industry.”  

The drpgroup is already in talks with the Kidderminster Academy to provide further sessions with more of the drpdigitalmedia team.
