This is an approximately 4-week part-time programme (6-8hrs/week) for people new to XR. It aims to give you a thorough grounding in who we are and how we work. Find where in XR you best ‘fit’ and become ready to move straight into a role with one of our amazing teams anywhere across the movement. You'll receive support, personal connections, a solid understanding of our work and all the tools you need for a flying start!

This programme will be useful for anyone starting out in XR, whether you have already joined a group or are looking for one.

The next course will start on Mon 12th June 2023.
To APPLY click the button below. When you sign up, there are a couple of small things we will ask you to complete before the programme starts.

You don’t need any experience of XR, just a can-do attitude, a good internet connection and up to 8 hours per week.

The programme consists of (with approximate time commitments):

  • Zoom trainings (2-4 hrs/week)
  • Selected reading and e-learning to check your understanding (2-3 hrs/week)
  • Support, help and guidance from the course directors

In your application message please tell us:

  • A bit about you, your skills, interests and whether you have any existing XR experience
  • If there are any hours of the day or days of the week you can't make for meetings etc (e.g. I work full time so can't make Mon-Fri 9-5).
  • Whereabouts you live (town, region/nation)

We're working to make XR UK a diverse and inclusive space and we welcome applications from everyone.

If you have less time to spare, or prefer less training, we are now running a Foundation Programme Light which picks out the most essential trainings and only needs a 1.5hr commitment per week.

Please add the email address to your list of safe senders to ensure our emails don't end up as Spam.
