On November 10, Human Resources Development Agency officially started the first level of the online course in Game Design. The training is completely free and is aimed at creative and ambitious young people from the city of Ruse and the region, who due to financial, health or other reasons do not have the opportunity to continue their education or to participate in specialized training courses. As they do not have licensed specialized software and do not have access to quality education, we will give them a chance to get acquainted with the concept of video game development and the secrets of creating cartoon characters. Besides, we will allow youngsters from remote regions to visit our online tutorials and watch their recordings at a convenient time on Moodle platform.
The individual evaluation of the participants in the first stage of the training will be carried out through practical assignments at the end of December. The duration of the full training course in Game Design will be 12 months.
The training course will be implemented under project CODE. The Project benefits from a 2 300 000 € grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants. The aim of the project CODE is to provide opportunities for quality employment to vulnerable young people in poverty risk.
