North East digital firm delivers educational games for national skills agency

A North East digital firm is continuing its long association with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) by creating a multiplayer interactive quiz, complete with seven new mini games to promote critical careers across Scotland.

Animmersion UK, based in Middlesbrough, has developed Classroom Clash to inspire young people, helping them understand future careers and opportunities. The company has worked closely with SDS during the pandemic to provide ways to deliver Classroom Clash face to face, on tablet devices in classrooms, and through a variety of remote online sessions on Windows’s PCs.

The interactive mini games are designed to engage and inspire students to consider a future career within key sectors for economic growth in Scotland, including computing and ICT, construction and building, engineering, healthcare, social work and caring services.

Samuel Harrison, managing director of Animmersion UK, said: “We are proud to have worked with SDS since 2016 on a variety of projects, all designed to underpin its immersive digital careers experience.

“Animmersion UK continues to develop innovative and responsive methods that allow SDS to fully engage with young people through the delivery of key educational messages and information about career options and opportunities against the background of a rapidly changing world of work.”

A spokesperson for SDS commented: “The sectors represented in Classroom Clash, offer exciting career opportunities and our work with Animmersion has provided a fun and engaging way to bring the world of work to life for pupils as they pupils explore them.”

SDS aims to improve the response of education, training, and careers services to the needs of employers and ensure young people have the best chance of succeeding in the world of work by exploring their options and helping them understand the wide range of future careers and opportunities available.
