Course Description
This on-line course is highly inter-active and learner-centred with ‘hands-on’ practical activities. It enables learners to discover what is needed to start a career in the Gaming industry including:
• Developing and pitching an idea for a new game
• Developing the basic design of a game
• Working on quality assurance and solving problems
• How games are launched
• Post-launch activities
• Different job roles and skills required in the process
• Working in a Team

The course leader is a young professional Game Designer. Learners gather evidence of the new skills and knowledge they gain and receive a Career Seekers Direct certificate of participation recognising their achievement.

The course takes place on Tuesdays. It may be possible to deliver the course on a different day if a school has a group of learners. To take part, learners need a computer with a microphone and be able to participate in a Microsoft Teams meeting. They will make notes and create designs to share with the course leader ( and other learners in a group if they wish). This could be done with pen and paper or on a mobile phone or other device.
