This qualification is designed for learners who want to acquire specialist skills in 2D animation, including digital production, pre-production, and small business development. This one year diploma programme provides learners with an end-to-end experience in production of 2D puppet-based character creation, and uses project work to ensure practical application of skills. The programme supports learners to develop a show-reel of their work towards securing future employment.

This programme gives you extensive end-to-end experience in the production pipeline process for 2D puppet-based character creation, and story design and development.

You’ll explore creative designs, story-telling methods, conceptual design and animation sequences for complex creative 2D projects, with opportunities to practice your 2D animation skills through project-work to help you create a high quality and engaging showreel.

You learn to evaluate and analyse your own work, so you know how to push your 2D animations further and further. We also teach you how to pitch your story and character ideas as you would in industry.

Graduates of this diploma know how to work productively, gain some wicked leadership skills, and have the confidence and competence to work independently as a freelancer, or collaboratively in a studio environment.
