Your journey ahead

The bootcamp is designed to mirror the real workplace with projects, 1-2-1 feedback, a focus on personal time management and a community to create with. Split over two phases, first, you will build the foundational technical XR 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 Unity or Unreal engine. 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 is a good fit. If it’s not right for you, your deposit back no questions asked. 

Through regular standups with peers, a private Slack group with access to a Technical Assistant, your own Success Manager and regular industry talks, we will surround you with a community to learn with and grow with.

 Coaching

 

Phase 2 - Get thejob

(average 3-6 months time)

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 motivation to get the very best job not just the first job that is offered to you.

Hiring studios care about what you've built. We will help you collaborate in teams of programmers and artists to build real-world demos that will get you noticed by recruiters.
