Education business The Strive Group and LDN UTD have announced “UTD EDN,” a program to aid young people in their pursuit of esports and gaming careers. The Strive Group will run eight-week traineeship courses through its new Esports Academy to help students secure jobs, apprenticeships, or further education. The program is aimed at young people from disadvantaged backgrounds or those who didn’t get accepted into a university.
The UTD EDN program will offer individuals a course at LDN UTD’s Centre of Excellence in Camden, with more than 70 hours of work experience with LDN UTD or other esports/relevant businesses. The UTD EDN initiative is an example of one of several partnerships The Strive Group is hoping to strike, with others planned for different regions across the UK.
“Digital careers are at the forefront of all young people’s minds these days,” said Ben Drew, Director of Innovation and Skills for The Strive Group. “This collaboration brings best in class from the world of esports and from our developmental program designers to offer a fantastic platform for individuals to take that first step on the ladder of ambition.”
