In a recent feature on Digital Recruitment published in new media age concerns were raised by industry heads about the way the current education system prepares students for work in the ‘real world of digital’.

Dan Pattern, director of digital media at MTV Networks UK & Ireland, highlighted that it is difficult for courses to remain up to date in the fast paced digital world. He said “I think that it’s often a real shock for graduates when they come to work at commercially driven media companies”. Tony Foggett, founder and CEO of Code Computerlove suggested that problems start even before college and university, “It’s hard enough for schools to get their head around advertising never mind disciplines and roles that are changing yearly”.
