Overview |Explore Creativity in Halton
Explore Creativity in Halton sessions are part of our Creative & Digital Careers in Halton programme which (thanks to European Social Fund) provides free training opportunities for Digital Arts & Technology skills to unemployed adults aged 19+ who live in Halton (Widnes & Runcorn).
These short courses will run over 4 weeks, consisting of 4x 2 hour sessions, which will be delivered online.
They have been designed to enable you to develop both creative and technological skills, as you learn about pathways into creative careers.
As part of this project, we’re offering 2 courses:
Video Game Design
Interested in Video Game Design?
Digital Photo Editing
Interested in Photo Editing?
Through expert tuition, small class sizes and access to a variety of digital arts and technology equipment and software, this project will open up a world of opportunities to you when you discover that you can develop the skills necessary to consider a future in the Digital Arts and Technology industry.
During these sessions you will be encouraged to further enhance your skills and knowledge outside of the classroom, by completing the iDEA (inspiring digital enterprise award) award Bronze.
As an incentive to complete the course, participants will receive a £20 Amazon voucher after attending the 4-week programme.
We are looking for people who fulfil the following criteria:
- Aged 19 and over
- A resident of Halton Borough
- Legally a resident in the UK and able to take up paid employment in an EU member state
Due to the amount of digital technology we will be using, you will need to have some basic IT skills. These sessions are perfect for anyone who is interested in Creative and Digital Technology, but doesn’t know where to start, or, has very little experience in them and is keen to know more.
These sessions will be online (via Zoom) delivered directly to your home (or anywhere you have internet access).
4 x weekly 2 hour face-to-face sessions.
The Video Game Design Course is scheduled to start on 26/11/20 for 4 weeks.
The Digital Photo Editing Course is scheduled to start on 27/11/20 for 4 weeks.
All of the courses are completely FREE OF CHARGE thanks to funding from the European Social Fund.
