What is the BDMA?

About the BDMA

Portslade Aldridge Community Academy (PACA) and Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) have partnered up with Brighton’s first local television station, Latest TV, to offer a new Digital Media Academy to students. The Brighton Digital Media Academy launched in September 2015 and is fast becoming the focal point for the city’s digital media education for 14-19 year olds, as well as providing creative and digital media industry training for the wider sector.

Brighton’s new digital media educational offer has been designed to inspire, motivate, nurture talent and support individuals in achieving their full potential. Our aim is to deliver a curriculum which is representative of the diversity of this vibrant industry. The uniqueness of the academy is the relationship between industry and educators working in collaboration to ensure that we produce the future pioneers of the digital media industry.

Our learners will be fully prepared for employment, having gained skills and real life work experience, which will support their progression into the creative digital media industry. They will have at the heart of their skills set, entrepreneurial and forward thinking attributes, which with the support of our industry partners will spring board them into this exciting, vibrant and fast growing industry.
