Digital Mile at Dundee & Angus College was announced as the Partnership of the Year winners at the SQA Star Awards 2018.

The Computer and Creative Media team at Dundee & Angus College launched ‘Digital Mile’ as a visual representation of links with local and global employers.

They have redeveloped traditional classrooms into learning spaces which replicate real working environments. It does this by ensuring the learners can undertake real-world commercial projects, work-placements, paid internships and ultimately jobs, in areas like games development and multi-media.
