From September 2015 The Academy Grimsby will be offering a brand new educational pathway, Creative, Digital and Games, for young people considering specialising their education from Year 10 onwards.
Creative, Digital and Games is an exciting sector, covering careers in everything from games design and production to video, film, photography, design and journalism.
Students will study for a BTEC qualification alongside traditional GCSE options. The Academy Grimsby offers exactly what all schools offer; high-quality academic GCSEs in a wide range of subjects, including Maths, English and Triple Science.
It is the extra choice that makes us unique – vocational pathways in popular sectors allowing our students to get the very best and balanced education locally. Our BTEC certificates or diplomas will develop practical skills that will help in the production of Creative, Digital and Games products as well as preparing students for Further and Higher Education.
Local jobs in Creative, Digital and Entertainment Media are growing; by 2020 within the Humber region there is expected to be over 15% job growth in a range of Creative, Digital and Entertainment industries.
If you know a young person interested in this exciting new career route, which will be offered alongside our current Engineering and Health Care Studies provision…why not bring them along to one of our Open Events on Wednesday 25th February or Thursday 16th April from 4pm-7pm.
