DMA’s Virtual Design Academy Runs Again

Tuesday, October 26th, 2021

We’re very pleased to be running our virtual work placement programme for the second time. Developed and trialed during lockdown last year, it allowed us to expand our offer to more young people across the UK and, this week, we have twelve enthusiastic pupils from years 10 to 12, joining us in what is their half term holiday. They are from four different schools in Liverpool and London – Calderstones Secondary School in Liverpool, St Augustines, Sir George Monoux Sixth Form College and City of Westminster College, and there are a few coincidental connections as David was a pupil at Calderstones, Lucy went to Sir George Monoux and we also run our apprenticeships at City of Westminster College. We’re very much looking forward to seeing what these talented young people have produced at the end of the week.
