Smartphones helped to drive the Video Games market to $93bn in 2013 & this skilled job market is expected to grow to match the demand!

The worldwide video games market has shown an increase of 18% in 2013, compared to 2012 and this growth forecast is comfortably expected to continue throughout 2014 & way beyond that! According to the US information technology research company Gartner this growth is being fuelled by an increase in mobile & smartphone gaming – as more devices are being used, the mobile gaming category is expected to show the biggest growth in entertainment and mobile video game applications (Apps) will make up a big part of that.

What does this all mean for the UK video games job market? As the Government has recently announced tax breaks for video games companies within the UK, this means more skilled individuals are needed to fill this growing job market.


The App Production Course is relevant for mobile platforms; iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. The course is designed for applicants who wish to develop a career in the computer games industry. This course is taught through a series of lessons and live examples, where the applicant would be expected to project-manage practical examples.

As with all the Video Games courses on offer, it's expected that applicants have a desire and flair for playing games - understanding how they work, how to improve the user's experience and especially for the emerging and fast changing platform of mobile game playing across different applications. The course will help applicants develop their in-built skills and potential to be set-up in the world of mobile games apps.

Creating a mobile app for Games is a learning process, which will also enable applicants cross over to other business sectors.

Applicants will learn about the new games technologies and course modules cover all aspects of games design, development, art animation and testing. Successful completion of the course will equip students with the skills & knowledge to work for a leading mobile games development company.
