    I wish to teach a new course on Game Engine development to my students perhaps next year.
    I have coding knowledge in Java and Python but no Game Engine experience on software like Unity, Unreal Engine, Unity GameMaker & Construct 2. The school will need to install one of these software. I will need to choose one that is perhaps freeware or is discounted. I will need to go on training for Game Engine. A quick search shows the price of training for these can start from £2000.

    It depends what you are trying to do and at what level. Each of the above are very different in what they can do and how much programming you would need to do to get things working e.g. gamemaker there is an excellent book on it, unreal is pretty easy to get up and running with an environment.
    Really need more detail on the level.

    Just do what most have always done - teach yourself
    As I stated on another recent post, the Unity educators section is pretty good
    https://learn.unity.com/educators
    and should provide a more than sufficient grounding for work at school level

    I went for Unity as it is free for educational use, the tutorials are good and easy enough to get your head around. I tried some of it out with my grandson who was 12 at the time, he didn't have to many issues either. In school it is slightly different because if you are running with minimum system specs then it takes its sweet time to render some items, then students start to moan etc.
