Context and stakes

The video game development market is booming and the city of Bordeaux is not left behind with its many professional studios. The main challenge of the sector: to unearth young start-ups mainly from a sector of computer development not very specialized.

With the development of techniques related to video games, the evolution of the market which is constantly growing, and an extremely dynamic ecosystem in Bordeaux, we have found fertile ground to develop a concept of apprenticeship to the professions of video game development.

– Julien Leonard, Director of La Horde

We were keen to approach the recruitment mission for the first class scheduled to open in September 2021 with a lot of empathy and ideation. Indeed, although the sector is growing year after year and the opportunities are multiplying, the technical requirement necessary to become professional and the health situation in early 2021 lead to many issues to overcome. We have applied the methodology below.
