Due to the interest in the recently announced Serious Games Showcase and Challenge, First Coding will be hosting a Game Design workshop to help budding game designers plan, prepare and polish a game ready for the competition.  This half term workshop is perfect for people wanting to explore game design but are unsure where to begin, or maybe you’ve tried making games before but got a little lost in the process.

They’re also looking for people to sign up to become game testers too. If you would like to play the games that get entered, then consider signing up to be a games assessor here.

Last year 2 of the games were bought by contractors for their own customers – the SGSC develops young talent and provides direct access to those that may sponsor them at Uni, provide apprenticeships in IT and Gaming and future employment. It has all happened through this programme in the US and First Coding is delighted to be chosen to help replicate it here in the UK.  It’s also very prestigious and would be a huge thing on any CV.
