This has to be one of the most exciting training opportunities to come across our desk recently; if you’re big into Game Design, then this could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. We’ve included a brief overview below from the Level Up website; if you would like to apply you can do so directly on the website.
The Level Up Programme is built by Game Anglia to help young people make and publish their first game, from scratch. Throughout this programme, the goal is to learn the basics of project management, the business of game development, and then learn programming, User Interface (UI) and 2D Art techniques to make a mobile game to be published on the Google Play Store.
Throughout the course, experts from all of these fields will be available to learn from and help you. Guest speakers will join each workshop to help the participants understand the career paths ahead of them, be it to begin their own company, sign up for a further course at university or college or get hired in an existing company.
COMPLETING THIS COURSE WILL HELP YOU:
- Build and launch your first game
- Improve your confidence and knowledge of the games industry
- Teach you transferable programming, UI and business skills
- Show you a variety of paths ahead of you and help you take whichever fits you best
WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?
The course is open to any 16-24 year old living in Suffolk, who is not in education, employment or study at the time of applying. We have a limited number of spots available, so the participants will need to fill in the below form to be considered. We will then arrange an interview and, if accepted, we will arrange the best way for you to take part in the course, due to start in early 2021.
On Wednesday 11th, at 1pm Game Anglia Co-Founder, Chris Filip will be joining YES on Zoom to discuss the Level Up programme with you and answer any questions you might have about it.
