The School of Digital Arts (SODA) has been given support by PlayStation Career Pathways Program to run its first mentoring programme for students studying in Year 12 and Year 13 from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. 

The Mentoring Scheme is an opportunity for students interested in studying the digital arts to gain relevant advice and guidance to help with their next steps.
