Simply Great Media
We provide a “Projects with Purpose” based learning approach to young people with autistic, social, emotional, wellbeing and special educational needs.
Through computing, gaming, engineering, coding, graphics, 3D printing, music, audio and video we create engagement in individuals that ordinarily resist participation in traditional learning programs. Our powerful adult led experiences engage learners in practical tasks that reinforce learning concepts, develop self-worth and self-belief through fun.
Simply Great Media is a different kind of provision;
- Delivered by industry experts.
- Addressing how technology affects young people and adults.
- Guidance through the social and emotional impact of the Online World.
- Education in employability skills the digital world seeks.
Originally delivering out of Dame Hannah Rogers Seale Hayne, and working in strategic partnership with the charity, we have a track record providing vocational technology and multi media services to individuals with a high range of challenging needs. Since our beginning in 2017 we have grown to offer a unique technology and media-based program to local authorities, specialist and virtual schools across Devon and Somerset. In January 2019, we relocated to Devon Square, Newton Abbot offering our clients easy public transport links, and greater value to our partner organisations.
