We live in a world where the rapid development of technology allows us to be smarter, more connected and more ambitious than ever before.
Our new Digital Academy will open its doors this September, ready to train the next generation of digital experts and take full-advantage of this new world of opportunity.
Partly funded by the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund, this state-of-the-art learning environment will include an eSports arena, a TV studio, digital workshops, a Mac suite and a digital design studio plus a whole range of specialist facilities and equipment.
What do we offer?
Our courses and apprenticeships will allow individuals to explore digital careers and progress through a pathway of qualifications leading to higher education, apprenticeships and employment. By working closely with industry professionals to develop each of our programmes, these courses will lead to real-life job opportunities for our students.
Computing and IT
From programming and coding to system support and cyber security, our cutting-edge courses will develop your skills, make you stand out and give you the edge in the exciting world of computing and IT.
Gaming is no longer a hobby – it’s a genuine career choice, and our students will be at the forefront of this growing industry. Our flagship programmes include eSports and Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality, alongside our already-popular Games Design courses.
Our courses in Animation, Multimedia Journalism, Creative Media and Social Media and Marketing have been shaped by current leaders in the fast-paced media industry. These courses will prepare you for an incredible career - with workplace visits, talks from guest speakers and even the possibility of work placements.
We also offer a variety of short courses to help adults to develop the baseline digital skills that all employers are looking for, such as answering emails, access company files on Google Drive, or tweaking website code. These courses are available online, at our Digital Academy in Northampton, or even at an employer’s premises, all at a variety of levels and starting points.
Our Digital Academy is far more than classrooms and computer screens – it is a place where the future will be created before our very eyes. Apply today to join us this September.
