Industry-led training for the games, screen and creative industries and freelancers

Creative industries have experienced remarkable growth in recent times and are some of the most dynamic and innovative sectors in the UK. But 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 coders, artists, 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 upskill 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 creative 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, well-structured, funded-training to eligible individuals and studios.

"This is by far the best coaching experience I've had as a business owner. As a freelancer, I don't have much budget spare for this kind of thing. And so I've tried a few free coaching and seminar programmes before. This blew all the others out of the water."

"The Business Bootcamp for Creatives course completely changed my life. Brought me clarity and gave me knowledge and tools to use and fall back on at any point in the future. An amazing course: modules so relevant and in an order that made sense to build on."

"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!"
