About Us

Games Apprenticeships is being delivered by Dr Gina Jackson OBE. Having been involved in the development of Apprenticeship and having seen the impact of them with the UK VFX sector she is keen to support games companies to utilise the government supported form of training which has been developed by industry for industry. Whilst as a trustee and then interim CEO of games industry mental health charity Safe in our World, Gina worked closely with community managers to understand their needs and delivery requirements for the very successful community management mental health training programme. Working with the CM community she could see the value training has both on the quality of their work and impact on community and game discoverability and engagement.  CMs often don't get access to training and this often has a huge impact on their mental health.
