Description...
Students attending this course are taught a range of skills such as how to produce interactive presentations incorporating video, audio, animation and graphics. Subjects are taught on Apple Mac computers. Students are taught on a one to one basis as much as possible. The majority of work on the course is practical rather than theory based, therefore students on this course produce varied and substantial portfolios.

As part of the work experience module each student spends ten days working for a company or organisation. Marcin Pikula, (who completed the course in 2010), spent his ten days of work experience working for Walsh Printers, in Clonakilty. Walsh Printers, offered Marcin a full time job as a graphic designer, once he had completed his level 5 certificate.
