Introducing TICE Animation. Here you can find out more about our national award-winning TICE programme and also Animation Taster Workshops. || TICE Animation explores avenues of short film, animated gifs, moving image for video games, motion graphics and special effects.


Join secondary schools around the North East region that participate in the annual TICE programme. The programme consists of all elements - Insight, Explore and Create Stages with a celebratory 'TICE Final Show' at the end of the academic year.

Taster Animation Workshops

If your school cannot participate in the TICE programme (Insight, ExploreCreate Stages & TICE Final Show) for whatever reason or your school would like to sample another area alongside the programme then please view the Animation Taster Workshops below.

1. Insight into Animation

This one-day workshop takes place in school and is an introduction to the animation industry. This involves the scope of the creative sector, career progression and fundamental creative business knowledge.

2. Explore Animation

Explore workshops run over a period of two days. This involves taking students out of school and immersing them into the animation industry. Students have the chance to participate in ‘behind the scenes’ tours, speak with creative entrepreneurs and business professionals. We look into further and higher educational courses and look at key skills the animation industry is looking for.

3. Create in Animation

'Create in Animation' are 3 day workshops whereby schools can select project of their choice. Students will gain further insight into a specific area of animation. Each project will involve guest speakers, tours, skills development and a completed piece of individual or group work.
