Our Mission

We help people find their passion in the video games industry.

We do that by building links between education and the wider sector; helping forge mentorship & work experience opportunities and; by making sure that learning and development pathways are easy to understand.

 

The Challenge

The games industry is worth over £5 Billion to the UK economy and it’s rapidly growing. This dwarfs both film and music, yet career pathways are still confusing and hard to navigate, leading to a sector thats understaffed and in desperate need of highly skilled, diverse talent.

In addition to this, the games sector is suffering a huge diversity problem that needs to be urgently addressed. Overall, if we don’t make sure young people are adequately trained and supported throughout their education and career, we risk badly damaging one of the countries most successful and creative industries.   

 

99%

of young people play games

Between the ages of 8 and 16, everyone, no matter their background plays games.

 

22%

women in the industry

This figure is reduced even further if just looking at technical roles. A balanced industry makes for better games.

 
 

4%

bame in the industry

A lack of Black or ethnic minorities in the industry risks making our games less globally inclusive.
