Game Academy helps you realise
your true potential and provide you with the
soft skillset you need to excel in your career.

It's free, with optional paid services.

What it is and how it works

Game Academy is a platform aimed to
improve your soft-skillset through gameplay.

We’ll analyse your performance and achievements to figure out
how your in-game choices and actions might affect your career
life, as well as where you need to improve.

Who it is for

We passionately believe in the potential of gamers! If you have the
extreme strategy skills in tower defence, amazing hand-to-eye
coordination or you rally your battle team and lead them to victory
— this programme is for you.

We are working with a focus on people based in the UK, whose jobs
are at risk and are aged 24+, however anyone is welcome to join.

We will take you through a collection of solo
exercises, group activities and visual content,
in order to prepare you for your dream job.

Uniquely, some of the course challenges
will commence inside the games you play,
while you’re having fun!
