The Samsung Digital Academy was built by Newham College London in collaboration with Samsung Electronics UK to create new opportunities for young people in the UK.
Students have a state-of-the-art learning environment that includes three new training classrooms, a research zone, and a TV and audio-visual room for practical and vocational training. Students also have the use of Samsung’s latest devices.
The Academy is in a diverse community that needs economic improvement and is near ‘Tech City’, a hub for technology-based businesses that needs skilled workers. With nearly half of its 1,300 businesses saying their biggest challenge is a skills shortage, the Academy is well placed to help meet the challenge. Samsung is also offering scholarships, and for select students, Samsung devices and IT conference places.
