The Games Education Summit 2019 is the first of an annual series of conferences to support the next generation of UK game developers, through enabling more collaboration, dialogue and best practice sharing between Further Education, Higher Education and Industry.

40 leaders from the UK’s leading games universities, colleges and development studios will discuss best practice course design, debate the latest trends in technology and games production, review graduate employability, unpack the opportunities and costs of apprenticeships, address diversity and accessibility and review how educators work with industry.

GamesEd19 is for games course leaders, games studio heads, games tools providers, games recruitment companies, 3rd sector games organisations and policymakers to discuss strategic issues of importance to the sector.

“This unique conference takes a strategic view of games education today, informing games course leaders and games studios about where the opportunities and challenges lie. The Summit will focus the debate on how UK studios and educational establishments can work together more effectively.”
Ian Livingstone CBE

“It’s incredibly valuable for educators to have a forum to discuss the collective challenges we face in games education and learn from the best practice of friends and colleagues with a common goal.”
Jacob Habgood, Sheffield Hallam University
