Creative Chronicles: Industry Education
16 January 2018
There are now many initiatives to bridge the gap between education and the industry and we need to expand on these to ensure all the UK benefits from the same opportunities to ensure a consistent standard.
Digital Schoolhouse helps teachers explore innovative ways to approach the new Computing curriculum, building confidence and supporting future tech generations through play-based algorithmic learning.
They work with schools to support quality education by providing workshops and identifying designated project leads.
There is an opportunity to shape curriculums to best help students become industry-ready.
Industry can work with colleges and universities on their curriculums to create courses that prepare graduates for the realities of the games industry and focus on the professional skills required.
AMBASSADORS FOR THE FUTURE
The Creative Assembly Ambassador Programme provides a focused platform for outreach, with our expert ambassadors speaking at schools and universities across the country. Through sharing their experiences and career paths into the industry, highlighting the variety of opportunities within games development, they can motivate, inspire and educate the talent of tomorrow. This is part of our Legacy Project’s commitment to wider industry education.
