From education to employment

Creative students gain ‘digital advantage’

Creative studies students at  Clarendon Sixth Form College have experienced the world of work after taking on a project with education company, Digital Advantage.

The students’ brief was to design a website for high-end fashion retailer ‘Heat’. They also had to create an app and short video to pitch their business idea in front of other students.

Ezra Rushen, director at Digital Advantage, helped to guide the students during the five day workshop, building on the skills they have already learnt on their course. He encouraged the students to come up with creative and innovative ideas based on their own life experiences.

Students were split into working groups to help create different components of the project, with a team manager being appointed and others leading on web design, video editing and content creation.

Ezra, said: “I have worked on many projects such as this and these students have stood out to me. They have all got on with the task at hand and created something original and modern without sacrificing quality. I am really pleased with how they have worked to together and will be showing their creations to other college’s students.”

Participants were presented with awards to celebrate their achievements in the college’s Brooke Vincent theatre.
