We are offering an innovative and exciting Interactive Digital Design course that will allow students to explore a range of new technologies and practices in design that are relevant to the pace of technological change. The Interactive Digital Design course introduces students to the design and study of computer games, web and graphic design, motion graphics and 2D and 3D animation.
Alongside the specialist software and design sessions, you will study for a BTEC Level 2 Tech Award in Creative Media Production, equivalent to GCSE 9-4. You will learn about the design and study of computer games, animation, graphic design and website production while on this course.
