Kieran Cullinan

  • CEO of Vortex Entertainment
  • Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT

Kieran’s time at Hopwood Hall College was a unique one, as alongside his studies he developed his own company – Vortex Entertainment.

Despite balancing such a big task with a full time course, Kieran was always a top performer who thrived on the independent learning his IT course supported. He also completed valuable work experience opportunities, such as designing and building a website for Rochdale Eye Care Clinic.

“Now I’ve left college, I am focussing completely on my E-Sports company. I manage a team of staff and organise events inside and sometimes outside of the UK. I also work with other event organisers to provide broadcasting and negotiate with sponsors to fund expansions and new products/technology.

“If you want to study computers, networking or web design and you want a career in this industry, then this course is ideal. I learned a lot of theory and practical skills that I apply in the real world daily.”
