I had a spot in phooka, but unfortunately they can no longer take me.

I am 15 years old and attend foyle and londonderry college. I would need it to be prefably in the city of londonderry.
the main areas i would like to learn about in programing/ creative.
Any ideas/ willing employers?

Then it may help to say where you live! :)
What area you in interested in? Presuming you live in Dublin (doesn’t everyone in the Republic??), you should try a multimedia or computer technology company. The small game development industry in Ireland makes it difficult for students to get work experience specifically in games.
Good luck, Patrick.

well im a norte unfortunatley, from the walled city of Derry and if i don’t get work experince then they are gonna shove me into sainsburys, so ill take a position in any aspect of game programming/design, haven’t really decided what area im gonna go for yet, so im hoping that this work experince will help me decide.

Ye’d think so but my careers teacher is a useless piece of equipment (Ironically an IT teacher as well and she doesn’t know Derry’s computer scene) if all fails then ill take up a job in my cousins shop and watch them assemble computers for a week

have you tried the Nerve Centre in Derry. They used to have a pretty good multimedia crew..
It is pretty hard for graduates to get work experience in the games industry so if you guys are only 16 then that is much tougher..I would certainly broaden your search beyond games companies to IT and multimedia companies given where you live and I guess the fact that you won’t be able to travel far.
if you are into the more creative side of things look at the creative northern ireland website for ideas about companies.. http://www.creativeni.com/
