Digital Media Taster Day @ Colchester Institute
Digital Media Taster Day @ Colchester Institute


We're delighted to once again be working with the team at Colchester Institute to deliver a series of key sector taster events for students in Essex. Showcasing Colchester Institute's offer around media and digital, this event is the second such date in the 2018/19 calendar, at the Colchester campus, and will offer up to 60 students in years 9 and 10 the chance to 'have a go' in hands-on and insightful workshops, led by a combination of academic and industry representatives.

Students will arrive at 9am for a 9.15 start, and then be split into smaller groups and rotated around 3 workshop activities throughout the day, focusing on Computer Game Design, TV Production and Editing. Students are asked to bring along a packed lunch and there'll be refreshments available throughout. Thanks to coming along for the day, it's our hope that students will report a better understanding of careers and courses available in the creative and digital sector in and around Colchester.

Here's the itinerary for the day:


09.00 – 09.15 Arrival

09.45 – 11.00 Activity 1 – TV Studio
