Industry training. Flexible, online learning. Government-funded.

Games and other creative industries have experienced remarkable growth in recent times and are some of the most dynamic and innovative sectors in the UK. For these industries to accelerate further, there's a real need for skilled, passionate and diverse talent. 

Our bootcamps and training programmes have been designed to train and upskill programmers, artists, testers, producers, creators, leaders and managers to thrive in this new world - and the best part, much of our training whether you're looking for your first job or you're a studio looking to develop your internal talent, is funded by the government.

Tailored to skills gaps

Our industry-first approach is built around identifying the latest skills needs and gaps - and adjusting our learning journeys and wraparound support to suit. 

Specialist in immersive industries

Our interest and passion lies in immersive and screen industries, like games, XR, VFX and film. We are authorised training partners for industry-standard tools like Unity, Unreal, Houdini and Autodesk 3Ds Max and Maya - and our mentors are typically certified instructors. 

Mentor-led training, at scale

It's easy to access learning content online but completion and engagement rates can be low. Our team of mentors and coaches work to ensure the right goals are set, training is structured, valuable feedback is provided, and learners are motivated and focused - all delivered at a scale that the industry requires.

Free or heavily-subsidised

Investing in training and learning can be costly but as approved providers of Skills Bootcamps, nationally and regionally, we can provide quality and well-structured funded-training to eligible individuals and studios. 



Upskill, reskill or specialise

"There are a lot of interesting people on the course with fantastic ideas and incredible abilities. As someone who enjoys making things happen, I loved being connected to other people, whereby I could help out on their projects too, and we could work together to create something bigger & better."
Development manager (alumni)
"The team at Mastered is just amazing. I was working a full-time job and was going through a tough time mentally, but they were so patient with any issues I had and pushed me to find a way around problems in ways I never thought about."
Technical artist (alumni)
"My time at Mastered has been nothing but fantastic. I came into Mastered with absolutely no programming experience whatsoever, to taking on the role of a Technical Game Designer within just the span of 5-6 months, thanks to the help of my mentors!"
