Multi-award winning games studio and creators of the Total War franchise, Creative Assembly, has partnered with 16-19 Academy, East London Arts and Music (ELAM) to deliver a new Game Design course.
This is the first integrated partnership in the UK for Further Education Game Design that will see students following an industry-developed curriculum. The course gives students the opportunity to learn game-making on a holistic level, encompassing games art, mechanics, programming, storytelling and sound alongside mentoring, masterclasses, workshops and more, from Creative Assembly’s experts.
Certified as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted, ELAM places central importance on being in touch with the creative industries, bridging the gap between education and industry. Over a quarter of ELAM’s students are from disadvantaged backgrounds and over 70% are from a BAME background, a demographic that is currently underrepresented in the games industry.
