Skills bootcamp in games technology – apply now!

UWE in Bristol is offering a free 16-week bootcamp in games technology to adults aged 19+ living in the South West.

Applications close tomorrow (November 2), so applicants need to apply immediately.

The course is open to all applicants, provided they are aged 19 or over, are recently unemployed, self-employed, looking to move into a new job role or coming out of furlough and seeking a pathway to a digital career.

Learning about games technology extends far beyond gaming itself - as the ability to develop rich interactive experiences, visualisations and simulations is becoming increasingly valuable to all industries, including aerospace, architecture, automotive, manufacturing, marine and medicine.

This 16-week programme will provide learners with an overview of how games are developed, and game technologies are applied outside of being solely entertainment products. Central to the experience will be training in Unity; a game engine and real-time development platform with many applications both inside and outside the entertainment industry.

An important element of the bootcamp will be practice-based learning. Personal and professional learning and development as part of the core delivery will ensure students develop the personal and interpersonal skills required to operate successfully as a professional within their chosen industry.

The course runs from November 8 to March 17 and will be a combination of face-to-face and online learning.
