Games Development and Coding Level 2 Programme

Print Page

This course is in preparation for the level 3 Games development and Coding which runs in Banbury.

Students will learn a mixture of work skills in the entertainment technology industry as well as specific craft based learning such as the creation of animations and websites. 

What I'll learn

You will learn all about the world of games development and what employers require from anyone starting new in this line of business. Games development is still a fast growing industry and new people are required all the time. It is, however not just people that can draw well but also persons that work well with others and can bring ideas over to others.


How I'll learn

You will be working in project teams and you will be asked to pitch an idea to a panel of  people that give you feedback.  A major project on the course will be the production of an animation that could be used for a games concept.


How I'll be assessed

Students will be taught by means of projects, assessment will include exams, and internally assessed project work.
