Organised together with TechSpark Academy, Florimont’s digital skills courses prepare students to become creative problem solvers in today’s digital world. Over four days in three 2022 sessions, participants develop new skills in the technology area of their choice to complete their own project. Such projects might include creating a video game, developing a programme, or telling a digital story through video and photography editing.

About the courses

Our interactive courses are delivered in small groups (1:5 instructor-student ratio) by expert instructors following a hands-on approach. Students are encouraged to think, create and develop curiosity for what’s powering the future.

  • Animation and Game Design
  • Code in Python
