D-Day – a Digital Schools Initiative from BIMA

Plugging the digital skills gap and nurturing young digital talent is one of the cornerstones of BIMA’s foundation. This is why BIMA has launched its 2012 BIMA D-Day – a digital industry schools initiative which is committed to partnering schools with the digital industry.

Suzanne added:”Being successful in digital requires a diverse mix of skills and as an industry we seek recruits with different educational backgrounds and interests. The BIMA D-Day sets out to inspire the digital talent of the future. It will enable young people to learn about the digital industry by involving the students in a digital project via the BIMA D-Day challenge.
