A new digital technology and games development programme, WebElevate, has been launched by Digital Skills Academy, in order to aide the fast growing digital tech and gaming sector in Ireland.
The scheme is part of the Higher Education Authority‘s Springboard programme.
WebElevate is an honours-degree level programme that develops talent for employment roles in the digital technology and digital gaming sectors, where there is strong jobs growth with over 4,500 jobs announced in these sectors since the start of the year.
The programme is free-of-charge for participants, who are eligible for the Springboard programme.
Some 200 jobseekers, who aspire to work in the digital technology and digital gaming sectors, will secure places, it said.
