The Next Gen Skills academy has unveiled its first course for aspiring developers.
The Level 3 Diploma in Games, Animation and VFX skills will begin this September at colleges across England, including North Easy Surrey College of Technology, Sunderland College, Truro & Penwith College and Uxbridge College.
The qualification is equivalent to three A Levels. Students on the two-year course will get access to industry mentors and industry–designed live briefs.
Next Gen Skills Academy is also supporting the creation of higher apprenticeships, which includes a quality assurance technician, led by Rebellion. A further role of community coordinator, led by Ubisoft Reflections, has been proposed for future development.
