Get ahead of the game; Take gaming to a higher level at Central.

COMPUTER games enthusiasts can turn their hobby into a career at Central College in Glasgow.

The college's new HNC Computing: Computer Games Development course offers training in programming, animation and graphic design, as well as the latest software platforms for the PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo Wii. This can then be applied across a wide range of training and business decision-making models.

The college's computing department offer industry-specific courses from Access through to HND level.

Former student Ricky Mason, 22, from Glasgow, secured a job as a business support specialist with computer giant Dell just weeks after completing an HND in Software Development last summer.

He said: "I accepted the job pretty much straightaway after finishing the course at Central College.

"Key to getting it was the fact that my course covered up-to-date, valuable industry certifications, such as Microsoft Certified Professional."

Jim Spry, computing section leader at the college, said: "Our computing courses are designed to provide the next generation of fresh talent with the knowledge and skills to be successful in this constantly evolving industry."
