Pulse College is delighted to announce that we have been awarded Springboard+ funding for the delivery of our 1-Year Part Time Level 6 Certificate in Animation. The Springboard+ funding is an initiative for unemployed people to gain qualifications and to up-skill (please read below for details on eligibility).

Designed in collaboration with industry partners, this Pulse College Springboard+ 1-Year Part-Time Certificate in Animation is for learners who wish to develop specific knowledge, skills and competence for the Animation Industry. It is developed and taught by practicing industry professionals to ensure that participants receive the very highest levels of training. This course covers the full range of topics from preproduction, production, and postproduction in 2D and 3D animation, as well as the theory behind animation.

“Those who successfully complete the course will have a strong set of core skills readying them to enter the animation workforce. This is done through practical examples and real life projects done with studio professionals, which will ultimately be displayed in their student portfolios.” – John O’Brien, Senior Lecturer in Animation at Pulse College.
