    I’d recommend NWRC to anyone that wants to work with children or young people. The courses are great for those who may not want to stay in school because it’s not for them.

    This course has been an exciting and challenging journey that allowed me to discover my love of design. The excellent tutors opened my eyes to new materials, techniques and media which has helped me develop my illustration and digital skills. I’ve now decided to study Game Design at university.
