Info for Parents and Teachers

BAFTA YGD is a free initiative that will inspire young people to turn their interest in playing games into a passion for creating them. YGD is perfect for use in an after-school STEM club, code club or within the curriculum using lesson plans which are linked to below. 

YGD provides a destination for careers advice and behind the scenes access to the games industry, where BAFTA members, award winners and nominees share their insights and advice through interviews and exclusive video content.

YGD aims to:

Drive awareness of the range of careers available in the games industry amongst young people
Promote understanding of the subject and career choices which young people have to make in order to develop a career in games
Promote games industry careers as a viable option to teachers, parents and guardians

The YGD initiative culminates in a free to enter competition where students can win the chance to get their game ideas made into a working prototype. More competition details will follow at a later date.
