New introductory courses launch in Manchester to upskill workers in digital currency and Esports

Education and training provider, SCL Education Group, are bringing part or fully funded digital learning courses in Blockchain and Esports for adult learners to Manchester.

In early 2023, both the Introduction to Blockchain and Introduction to Esports programmes will be delivered virtually, or on location, over two days, providing learners with key skills they can apply to the workplace.

Delivered as part of the European Social Fund (ESF), Manchester-based businesses will benefit from upskilled staff who have a clear understanding of growing digital sectors that will further enrich their individual job roles.

According to SCL Education Group course tutor, Belal Miah, digital skills are becoming increasingly essential within the workplace and expanding your skillset is a must for young employees looking to grow their roles.

“Digital currency and esports are two of the biggest growing sectors, not only in the UK but worldwide, and these courses focus on more than just these areas. Courses like the Introduction to Blockchain and Introduction to Esports provide a great foundation for anyone looking to upskill or find a new role within the wider digital landscape.”      

The Introduction to Blockchain programme will cover the basics of digital currency, including how blockchain works, and the job opportunities available for those looking for a career change or progression.

The Introduction to Esports programme explores the world of professional gaming, how the industry is regulated and what the esports landscape looks like in terms of opportunities and roles.

SCL Education Group is now accepting applications from Manchester-based learners aged 19+ for an immediate start, with sessions delivered by digital technology experts on an ongoing basis throughout 2023.
