City councilors in Liverpool (England, UK, EU ... sorta) are planning on creating a "computer games academy" in the city. The Liverpool Daily Post
reports the £5m facility would train students in art, coding and tech. As Develop
notes, the area is home to SCEE Liverpool and Bizarre Creations
, with 1,500 developers employed in the area.
The city's enterprise leader, Councilor Gary Millar, hopes the academy will become a hub for well-trained potential employees and inspire people to "up-skill and get involved." It's a good thing for the UK, as the region continues to fight for tax breaks
and develop more skilled labor
for the industry.
