Kudos QA and Education
Something we’re all passionate about at Kudos is that we recognise the importance of investing in the young talent of tomorrow. Hands on experience and specialist training play such critical roles to encourage young people and help them pursue their ambition of working in the games industry.
Worth an estimated £5.7billion, the UK gaming sector offers numerous career opportunities for keen video game enthusiasts - from designers and programmers to writers, animators and audio engineers. An excellent place to start out is gaining a steppingstone into the industry through QA Testing. Trainees can learn all the basic elements of what makes a game successful and is the perfect way to begin their journey into their dream career. We partner with a range of different education institutions to bring these opportunities to students who are interested in breaking into the world of gaming or a creative career.
What can we offer educational institutes?
We visit several career events throughout the year to communicate the benefits and opportunities of working in the gaming industry. We get to meet some great prospective students and give advice on how to step on to the gaming career ladder. Get in touch if you would like us to visit your institution.
Internships are offered on a case by case basis. If you would like to find out further information, please get in touch.
We also offer a range of insightful Quality Assurance testing workshops covering a variety of relevant topics. We can tailor the content to suit your audience, from general industry talks to the importance of QA and the different career options available once students leave full-time education.
We can offer guidance and impart our knowledge to students whilst completing their games course studies. Sheffield Hallam are one of the institutes we’re working with, providing on- site visits, virtual calls and direct email to support the development of their knowledge in the game development process.
At KUDOS QA, we offer a one-week work experience placement within our QA teams throughout the year. The placement provides a fascinating insight into the life of a games tester and students spend the week working on live tasks in a real gaming environment.
We welcome applications from all interested students, including SEN pupils, in collaboration with their tutors. Get in touch to find out more about these fantastic opportunities.
We also offer Site Visits
At KUDOS QA we’re extremely proud of what we do. We want to offer people the opportunity to see the environment we work in and the cool things we do. If you, or one of your students, would like to visit our testing HQ then get in touch - we’d love to have you.
