    When I completed my GCSEs I knew that I wanted to go to College to learn a trade. During my course I had the opportunity to compete at the UK WorldSkills finals in England. Now I'm one of the UK's top tilers!

    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.
