Qantm to offer design and coding lessons for Apple's handset starting in February

Digital media college Qantm has announced plans to offer an iPhone games development course.

Starting next year, 'the course is tailored specifically for designers aspiring to produce work for Apple’s iconic instrument'.

The London-based college has added the course, it said, in response to employment demands. The lessons will run alongside its established Game Design & Development Course and in time will also be offered at its colleges in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Amsterdam, Berlin and Munich. The iPhone Course will be open as evening and weekend classes from February 23rd 2009, costing £3,950.

Nic Oliver at Qantm commented: “With the games market exploding with next-generation activity and web designers in such high demand there's never been a better time to consider a career in interactive entertainment and new media. The iPhone Course is a great example of education and industry working perfectly together.

"At Qantm we work very closely with commercial organisations, which yields great dividends in terms of relevant and practical course content and, consequently, higher employment opportunities for our students.”
