NextGen Skills Academy runs short courses all over the UK that promise learners an introduction to the Games, Animation and Visual Effects (VFX) industries.

We're committed to supporting young people to get into these dynamic fields. Companies in these digital industries are crying out for new talent and we want to provide it by inspiring a new generation of digital creators.

We work with colleges, leading employers, sponsors and partners to develop and deliver NextGen certified short courses. These are led by tutors with a wealth of industry and educational experience.

That means the skills you learn will be up to date, relevant and practical. What you learn will be useful in the workplace and will also help you make decisions about further courses. You could go on to study for a NextGen Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma in Games, Animation and VFX Skills.

If you're not sure that this is the field you want to study and work in, pop along and try it out. You'll find out about job roles and experiences you never knew existed.
