In a world where the digital age is growing how can education establishments keep the next generation up to date with whats next? It is estimated that by 2030 65% of millennials will be in jobs that don’t yet exist. That’s almost two-thirds of a generation, leading onto the question of how can today’s world get them ready for the work life that doesn’t even exist yet?
At UTC our aim is to introduce 14 year olds into the world of digital creativity alongside studying for their GCSEs.
