Game Design Courses for Kids

Coding, Game Design & Tech

Are you interested in teaching your child how to design their own games? Or do you want to give them a head start in life? If yes, you should enrol them in our game design courses for kids!

The video games industry is the fastest-growing sector for entertainment. And it’s not hard to see why. Kids love playing interactive games. And what better strategy than giving them a chance to be one of the best game developers in the future?

Designed by a university lecturer, our video game design courses are ideal for children ages 9 to 16 years old, where they’ll also get an NCFE accredited qualification after course completion. Children don’t only learn visual programming language and other professional applications and skills, but also utilise their minds to design their own 3D game to share with friends and family. What’s more, they’ll be using the same tools used to create some of the world’s biggest games like Fortnite, PUBG, Rocket League, and Borderlands 3!

My child has recently been diagnosed with dyslexia and was having difficulty in school, finding a subject that he really enjoyed and wanting to learn. He has a passion for technology and wanted to learn more. We've been attending software academy since Apr 18 and he has excel in confidence and excited to learn plus the level of technology and technics he is exposed too are asset to his future. I strongly recommend this academy to all parents who find their child always on tablets and wanting to play computer games. Computers are the future give your child a great head start.
