Digital Arts & Digital Marketing Launch


Digital Arts & Digital Marketing Launch

Venue: City Gallery, Peterborough 7th June

The University Centre Peterborough has validated three new courses starting in September 2018: a Foundation Degree in Digital Arts and a Foundation Degree and BA (Hons) in Digital Marketing. The courses are designed for people with creative talents that want to pursue a career in the creative and digital industries. At a launch event at the City Gallery, Amber Every, the Course Leader for Digital Arts said:

“The Digital Arts degree is designed with both our students and local employers in mind and our aim is to deliver industry standard skills that to ensure a smooth transition into employment. This course has been long awaited and we are looking forward to delivering a Digital Arts degree that to those who are looking to work within the creative sector.”

Dr Pamela Watson-Bateman, Academic Lead for Business and Law said;

“The world of marketing has completely changed such that no company can afford to ignore the digital aspect of their marketing campaigns. The Foundation Diploma and Degree course provides students with crucial skills that will help them succeed in a rapidly-changing jobs market.”

Josie Stone Project Director Vivacity said:

“We are delighted to be a partner of the University Centre and to sponsor this launch event. If Peterborough is to meet its ambitious regeneration targets graduates need the skills that creative and digital companies need. These courses provide them.”

Richard Stagg Director of Dsquared Ltd said;

“In a time where career opportunities are becoming ever more challenging for young people entering the workplace, why are education establishments not in regular dialogue with employers to ensure students leave college armed with the correct commercial skills? One such course bucking the trend is the all new FDA Digital Arts Degree, headed up by Amber Every of University Centre Peterborough. Amber was quick to consult with DSquared to analyse what skills, if any, were lacking in today’s crop of college leavers. As a result of this, we are now closely consulting with UCP to ensure the new course contains relevant industry content. From short, sharp shock projects, Dragon’s Den style presentations, to time keeping and workplace experience. Working in unison with creative agencies can only be a positive for UCP, the FDA Digital Arts Degree course and most importantly the students enrolling on the course.”
