GAMES CAREERS WEEK UK – CAN YOU HELP?

The UK’s National Videogames Museum has announced plans to host this year’s Games Careers Week in June and is calling on the Women in Games community to once again help out and inspire the children and young people attending.

All activities will be promoted on the GCW website site, and organisers have highlighted that they are welcoming any suggestions of other activities to promote.

At the National Videogame Museum in Sheffield itself, a careers fair will be hosted on Tuesday June 25th and Wednesday June 26th, from 9.30am to 3.30pm. The focus will be KS3 secondary students aged 7-14 years old looking at pathways into Games and Creative careers. Exhibitors will be studios and educational providers offering interactive activities and advice. The NVM is also working with the L3 Sheffield College Games Design students to offer drop-in workshops for the attendees.

The NVM is looking for exhibitors and volunteers to take part in the Fair and help inspire the next generation of talent.

Head of Learning Stacey Jubb said: “We would love to have more exhibitors join us at the NVM on Tuesday 25th & Wednesday 26th June with interactive stands that engage students whilst learning about career pathways in the industry. We were so grateful for the support of the WIG Ambassadors last year and would love more Ambassadors to share their passion and enthusiasm on the day.”
