The Digital Technology and Multimedia department at Ashton Sixth Form College has produced some amazing students that have gone on to do great things.

Our DTM department includes a range of courses, which are: Video Games Production, Film Studies, Media Studies, Information Technology (IT), and Media Production. Studying these subjects at ASFC gives students access to quality equipment and technology. These include a TV studio, computer labs, an IT workshop, and more.

Here are some examples of our students and where they ended up…

Our courses give students the opportunity to go on trips to big businesses. Some examples include our students going to: the Google Digital Garage, the Apple Store, and Cisco. This makes it likely for students to gain a place studying at university or to successfully secure a job within media or IT.
