The Samsung Experience Academy
Students will learn new skills for the emerging Smart technology markets in the Samsung Experience Academy. This is the first Academy in the UK to provide training for Samsung's Smart flagship products including Samsung 3D Smart TV products and hand held devices. The programmes are designed to help learners gain technical knowledge and practical qualifications and provide them with a greater understanding of the latest smart device technologies. The new Smart Experience Academy at Kidderminster will deliver cutting-edge training to keep pace with these new technolgies and will specialise in the delivery of qualifications for the creative and technological industries.
The Samsung Experience Academy will provide students with a once in a lifetime opportunity to start a career in software development and application (apps) development. You will have access to the latest Smart TVs and Smart hand held devices using the Android application and the knowledge that all lecturers will have close links with industry through the Samsung network of software developers.
Learners will be able to access this exciting new training opportunity at either Level 2 or 3 depending on their GCSE grades on entry. By the end of your level three course you will be able to successfully write Android applications and have an excellent understanding of software development. You will have developed a sound understanding that will enable you to seek employment through the Samsung software developer’s network of employers or progress on to university or higher Apprenticeship programme.
The course explains how to get started with developing applications for Samsung SMART Technologies by introducing basic concepts, the application development process and the Software Development Kit (SDK).
This programme is underpinned by a nationally recognised qualification through BTEC Edexcel, which is equivalent to three A-levels and recognised by all universities across the UK.
During your time within our Samsung Experience Academy you will:
Learn how to network and stream audio/video with over 39 of the latest Samsung home technology Smart products
Learn to develop ‘apps’ using the Android Software Development kit alongside other software development tools
This is a hands-on software development course, which encourages learning through constantly instilling better building, and designing skills in students by making them develop progressively more sophisticated applications for Smart hand held devices
All students on the course will also develop the essential skills to enter employment. Using the latest videoconference facilities, students will have the opportunity to interact with employers around the world
There is a opportunity for students to win Samsung Smart handheld devices, awarded to individuals who develop the best looking and most functional apps at the end of their level three BTEC programme. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their application in a real life setting in front of a panel of industry experts.
