Young Scot Digital Placements

As part of our work in Digital Education in Scotland, Young Scot have recruited young people from S3 and S4 of High School and placed them with a digital expert to help them gain some experience and further knowledge of what might be a future career.

From June to November 2013 Young Scot placed 22 young people with 13 ‘digital champions’ (digital companies)  which ranged from audio and radio production,  film production and TV broadcast, web design, online content and video game production. The placements were located across Scotland – Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen.

The case studies attached give a flavour of the young people’s experiences on their digital placements.
