What is a Studio School: Studio Schools are a new concept in education. They offer a pioneering approach to learning which includes teaching through enterprise and real work experience. It has been recognised that there can sometimes be a gap between the knowledge and experience a young person gains in the current school system and that which they will need to flourish and thrive when they finish their compulsory education and progress into a job or further/higher education. The culture of the Digitech Studio School will help bridge this gap and seem more like a workplace than a school, and with the help of local employers students will gain as much work-related experience as possible. At the heart of the Studio Schools model are seven essential elements: These are:
  • Employability and enterprise skills
  • Key qualifications
  • Personalised curriculum
  • Practical learning
  • Real work
  • Small schools
  • Students of all abilities
These are the key ingredients that will help young people develop relevant skills, experiences and qualifications.
