YGD Workshops for teachers and students

BAFTA/Jonathan Birch

Come along for advice and guidance on teaching and creating games

As part of our schools and student outreach, we'll be travelling around the UK with our Young Game Designers workshops. If you're looking for advice and tips on teaching game design, or are looking to create your own game for the competition, join us at our sessions to speak to our team of workshop leaders and practitioners who work in game design.

We'll be updating this page as we add more dates across the year - keep checking back so you don't miss any in your area.

Teacher workshops

Learn tips and tricks on how to get your class involved in designing and making their own games. Resources are aimed at encouraging 10-18 years old to enter the competition and will provide them with all the information they’ll need on the game design process.

Discover new ideas on how you could incorporate these plans into PSHE, Business Studies, Computing, English, Art and other subject lessons.
