TIGA releases free games career guide

Advising students on entry level qualifications and career progression

UK games industry trade body TIGA has released a guide aimed at students and young people looking to enter the games industry, explaining what qualifications will be needed and how they can expect their careers to progress.

The guide, entitled Your Guide to Career Paths in Games Development, is available to download for free from TIGA's website and offers advice on salary expectations and which areas of the country offer the best chances of industry employment.

"In our experience people are often unaware of the fantastic opportunities that exist in the UK games industry," said TIGA CEO Richard Wilson.

"They also do not realize the size of the industry here in the UK. We hope this guide will offer people practical, straight-forward advice on how to secure a job in this exciting sector."

For an insight into the ways that some developers feel the UK's education system might be failing potential industry applicants, read today''s interview with Hello Games' MD Sean Murray.
