Pulse College to launch Springboard+ Animation Certificate
25 Jul 2017 : Katie McNeice
Twenty-five places are now available on the course for unemployed applicants who meet the eligibility criteria outlined below.

The course is a part-time Level 6 qualification beginning Monday, September 18th with an application deadline of Monday, September 11th.

It will offer students specific knowledge and skills in the animation industry, covering topics such as pre-production, production, and postproduction in 2D and 3D animation and animation theory.

Applicants Must:
  • Be actively seeking work
  • Have been in employment previously
  • Be unemployed for any length of time, however short
  • Be in receipt of Dept of Social Protection payments like Jobseekers Benefit/Allowance
  • Have previously been self employed

Those who participate in the Springboard+ courses will be able to retain their social welfare benefits and if they find a job, they will still be permitted and encouraged to finish their course.

John O’Brien, Senior Lecturer in Animation, Pulse College:
“Those who successfully complete the course will have a strong set of core skills readying them to enter the animation workforce. This is done through practical examples and real life projects done with studio professionals, which will ultimately be displayed in their student portfolios.”
