Gain skills and experience, open the door to a well paid career in Cornwall or University

A new way of learning

Digital Academy Cornwall has developed from a meeting of minds and ideas, from software companies, creative thinkers and Cornwall’s leading information technology training provider.

With a national shortage of digital skills, there is a need to challenge how we think about skills training and education for digital industries.

We need to prepare the developers, technicians and dreamers of the future to be work ready, with high-level skills, real world experience through extensive industry support. In order to achieve this we need to evolve traditional concepts of learning and look at things differently.
