East London Arts and Music is the industry academy for 16-19 year olds. ELAM exists to enable talented and ambitious young people to develop careers in the Game, Music and Film industries by providing them with access to the creative industry. 

There is no other place like ELAM. Graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in 2017 across every category, ELAM continues to be the Number 1 institution to study Games Design, Music or Film and Television. So if you are interested in working with world-class facilities, amazing people and professionals, this is the place for you. 

We are a recognised centre of excellence and we want to share our experience and expertise. We want to help contribute towards a more diverse landscape and get more people involved in the gaming industry. We want to do this by increasing the educational outreach of games design.

We will be delivering half-day workshops teaching different aspects of games design including programming, digital graphics and animation through play-based learning and exploration with access to exciting industry-standard facilities and equipment.

Our workshops will be available to book on Mondays with 24 high-end gaming computer workstations available per class. Please contact Olivia Walters, our lead teacher, to arrange your workshop.
