Kidderminster College is proud to announce the new partnership with DRPG to collaborate in the creation of a new creative digital media course to bring together innovation in education and digital technology and media for the next generation of digital media creatives. ‘Creative Digital Media’ will be the first course under the new MAS Media department, which will be offered from September 2021.
Kidderminster College is home to the successful nationwide artist development programme ‘MAS Records’ that has been established for 20 years, which gives musical artists the opportunity to develop their careers in a real world environment while gaining an industry recognised qualification. MAS also is proud to have patrons that include Ricky Wilson (Kaiser Chiefs/the Voice), Karen Harding, and Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin).
DRPG, who have set up this course in partnership with MAS Records, is a global creative communications group celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The group creates and delivers integrated communications solutions for an industry wide range of clients and brands, for both external and internal audiences worldwide. DRPG is also home to the filming of channel 5’s ‘The Gadget Show’ and has high-profile clients that include Jaguar Land Rover and Sainsburys. This partnership will combine the innovative educational model of MAS Records with the contemporary digital technology, experience, and practices of DRPG to enable learners to build their skills in an industry relevant setting as some elements of the course will be delivered on site at DRPG headquarters in Hartlebury where learners will be exposed to this working environment.
