"We have students from Nottingham and Manchester and even from Spain this year"."The course is very much geared towards employment and allows learners to specialise in the area they want to work in. A part-time study option is available too, which draws in people already working in the industry who haven't yet reached degree level. It gives them a chance to build up a diverse portfolio of work which isn't always possible under pressure on the job." Graduand Laura Costelloe has already found employment with digital company Digital Consortium, based in the Elsie Whiteley Centre. Laura's work features an on-line storyboard using Adobe Flash software. Student James Greenwood said "This year's students have worked alongside organisations such as Yorkshire Forward, Design Definition and Calderdale Council. It's an eclectic show featuring diverse work and including place branding for a regeneration project, creative advertising, and alternative fashion photography. The show runs from Wednesday 17 June until Friday 10 July. Entry is free.
