TIGA Launches Education Matching Service

November 2, 2011 -

UK video game industry trade group TIGA has launched what it calls an education matching service that will help colleges and universities with speakers from the games industry. TIGA education manager Lorna Evans will oversee the matches.

"The UK video games industry competes on the basis of its highly skilled workforce," said CEO Richard Wilson. "The TIGA education matching service will strengthen education-industry links, promote opportunities for knowledge sharing and further enhance the quality and offering of higher education. TIGA's new service will benefit the video games industry, students and universities and colleges."

"Abertay University has strong relationships with the local industry," said Dr Louis Natanson, academic director of the Institute of Arts, Media and Computer Games at the university. This helps to make our courses some of the best in the UK. TIGA's initiative will help more universities to provide excellent courses, to the benefit of students and the wider games industry."

A list of guest lecturers and further details about the service are available on the TIGA website.
