The level 3 Gaming Subsidiary Diploma is a one year F/T course that allows you to gain one A-Level’s worth of BTEC Media with a sole focus on Computer Games. It is suitable for students who may wish to choose it alongside one A-Level, if they have the correct grades to do so. For students who are borderline L2 / L3, this is a good option to bridge the gap and still have time to focus on English and Maths GCSE resits.
The course focuses on industry, studying the different structures of Computer Games Design Houses, with a focus on roles within the industry and specific pathways to forge a career. We create narrative for computer games through designing of our own board games, and then create concept art for our own computer games designs. We then build simple games and create sound for them. If you love computer games, then this might be a great option for you! Entry criteria for this course will be either 3’s in English and Maths, including 4s and above in other subjects, or a four in either English or Maths, but not in the respective other subject.

Students can progress to ICT or Media Level 3 upon completion of this course.
