Media Design School staff and students are beaming with pride but not at all surprised that Game Art programme leader Mike Porter’s contribution to Media Design School has been globally recognised.
Globally recognised as the epicentre of big budget film productions and home to leading AAA games studios, California will have a new talent pool to tap with the launch of Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD (New School of Architecture and Design) in San Diego, a collaboration with the award-winning Media Design School.
International Travel College Account Manager Ceri Jenkins made a recent presentation to Kelston Girls’ Careers Academy to present an exciting project that will enable students at years 12 and 13 to gain standalone travel and tourism qualifications at level 2 and 3. These can also be used towards their level 2 and 3 NCEA qualifications. These students then have clear pathways into tertiary courses at ITC if they choose to take them.
Media Design School is encouraging more girls to consider careers in programming and game development with specialist events aimed at the high school market.
