BlueWhale is an independent training organisation specialising in the delivery of digital media qualifications. In 2021, we celebrated our 20th year of working with young people, during which time we have built a successful reputation for our innovated delivery techniques and engaging course content. We continually evolve our delivery as the needs of our young people change and it is this successful model that has enabled thousands of young people to achieve with us.

We work in partnership with local education authorities, pupil referral units, secondary schools, SEN schools, virtual schools, the NHS, community groups, youth organisations, mental health organisations, residential care homes and charities. Our bespoke and holistic approach to education, helps our young people to develop both socially and emotionally, which we value equally as important as any qualifications achieved. We deliver a range of accredited courses ranging from Entry to Level 3 and our programmes are developed to specifically target student interests.

Our philosophy is to create an environment where young people can flourish and confidently gain a range of digital media skills in order to progress and enhance their lives.  We continually review and develop our facilities, skill set and programmes to ensure our learning environment is highly interactive, engaging and fun. This builds a more relevant learning experience that connects with the young people we work with, enabling them to explore their personal interests whilst working through a suite of industry recognised qualifications. We strongly believe that all children have the right to freely express themselves and the arts are a powerful vehicle to make this happen.


We equip our students with the skills, knowledge and experiences that will positively support the challenges they face.  Our stimulating environment encourages BlueWhale students to be active co-creators of their own learning.  This evokes both a sense of pride and ownership in their work and equips them with the mind-set to strive towards achieving their dreams and aspirations. As we reach our landmark year, we have streamlined and improved our programmes and offers and look forward to engaging, educating and inspiring more young people than ever before.
