Your job is our priority

Traditional courses are about teaching you skills. This bootcamp is about getting you a job. We will help you identify the right roles and industry for you, personalise your curriculum, and support you until your first day in your new career. 

You pay when you are hired

Unlike traditional courses, we offer jobseekers the chance to pay their full fees if and only when they are hired. That’s our way of making sure that finance isn’t a blocker to opportunity and to let you know we’re in this together. 

You don’t need to learn alone

It’s easy to access learning content online. We put a team of people around you to help with the hard part - structure, feedback, accountability, motivation, focus and human support.

Train in the industry standard

We are authorised training partners for Unity, Unreal and Autodesk. Our mentors are certified instructors and our bootcamp outcomes have been carefully designed with hiring companies and analysing the job market.

Your journey ahead

The bootcamp is designed to mirror the real workplace with projects, 1-2-1 feedback and a team to collaborate with. Split over two phases, first, you will build the foundational technical games programming skills. Then, our team will support you to build your portfolio, develop your mindset and get an actual job. 

 

Phase 1 - Get the skills

Self-paced, minimum 12 hrs per week

Based on your goals, you’ll be connected to an industry mentor who will assess your skills, create a personalised curriculum for your level, and agree a timetable and structure that you'll be accountable to.

Mentoring-1

 

Week by week, you will cover key aspects of game engine development. You'll have materials to work through at your pace, and regular meetings with your mentor to review your progress and get feedback.

You will only move onto the next level when you have demonstrated your competencies. We move at your pace, not our schedule.

In your first month, there will be workshops and tasks to help you identify the roles, industries and companies that you are most suited for and give you the direction and focus you need.  

A chance for both parties to assess if this bootcamp is a good fit. If it’s not right for you, all fees paid will be fully returned to you. 

Through weekly sessions with peers, a private Slack group with technical support, your own Success Manager and regular industry talks, we will surround you with a community to learn with.

 Coaching

 

Phase 2 - Get the job

(average 3-5 months)

You will carry on meeting your mentor - either weekly or fortnightly depending on your pace - to ensure that your progress remains on track.

Mentoring-1

Find your first job with support to write your CV and LinkedIn, prepare your portfolio, get ready for interview, and a push to get the very best job not just the first job that is offered to you.

Work on your own real-world projects and demos that will be your route to get noticed by recruiters and hiring managers.

When you’re ready, you will have the opportunity to take exams to show to prospective employers the level that you have reached and get certified.
