The Game Dev London Community Education Initiative, or GDLedu, is a program intended to provide both aspiring and veteran game developers with low-cost classes that build, refresh, or expand skillsets used throughout game development, from 3D modelling to score writing.
GDLedu's objective is to help aspiring game developers gain access to more professional opportunities in game dev, and assist veteran devs in elevating their careers and obtaining greater opportunities for promotion or new roles, either at their current employer or in the wider games community.
Community education programs involve input from all community members - not just instructors. Using constructive feedback from the GDL community members on topics covered and class structure, GDLedu aims to provide comprehensive education with student needs and desires in mind.
Community education is often used as a viable alternative to more expensive further education programs, such as those provided via universities, colleges, or online platforms. The increased accessibility provided by low-cost course offerings by experienced and credentialed instructors not only helps students get to where they want to go with skills proofs, but also offers lots of opportunities for networking and collaboration among both students and instructors.
We look forward to seeing you in class!
