Glamorgan was amongst the first ever animation courses to receive the industry's official seal of approval announced by the government training-standards in education watchdog Skillset.This official "Kite-Mark" or "Seal of Approval" singles Glamorgan out as one of the top three training providers for animation in the UK and comes with significant animation-industry backing, support and recognition.

    In addition to this we have also now been awarded a second Skillset tick for training 3D Games Artists to the highest level in the UK, making us the only college in the whole of the country with two Skillset awards for its quality of teaching and training.
