AIM Awards

UKIE Member

Apprenticeship End Point Assessment Organisation with a specialist interest in the creative industries. Our flagship qualifications are the Level 3 Diploma and Extended Diploma in Games, Animation and VFX Skills (Tech Level), designed and maintained in partnership with employers across the games, animation and vfx industries. We work closely with The NextGen Skills Academy to support further education centres to deliver the qualifications with input from industry.

Through our relationship with UKIE and the esports sub group we have also developed the first national qualifications for the esports industry. These are relatively small qualifications that can be added to study programmes in any industry area where esports is beginning to impact e.g not only games but events management, sports, journalism, business. The qualifications support understanding of how the industry functions and skills for running a LAN tournament.

AIM Assessment is our End Point Assessment Organisation with an increasing specialist portfolio across the creative industries that includes the first Standards for the VFX Industry – Junior 2D artist and Assistant Technical Director. Our plan includes adding the Standard for Games Community Manager.

We are always happy to help with any questions regarding assessment and accreditation for the interactive entertainment industry and would very much lkie to hear from anyone in Industry who would be willing to support us with their knowledge and experience or who would like to work with us as assessors.
