Bespoke Training

If the Interactive Media training you require isn't covered by the above two courses, we can put together a course which is designed with your needs in mind. A bespoke (a course written to your specific needs) one day, two day or three day course can be designed and delivered to up to 15 delegates at your workplace and can be as broad or as specific as you wish. It could focus on how to build an effective navigation system, or how to build games for example. Or maybe you'd like a course which focuses entirely on accessibility, compatibility and search engine optimisation within HTML5. If you'd like to discuss your training needs further, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to talk you through what we can offer you.
