Gibraltar government just announced the launching of a new advisory group that will focus on the development of new courses related to new technology, such as blockchain.
Gibraltar doesn’t want to get left behind. Following the approval of Coinfloor as the first regulated crypto exchange in the country just days ago, the government announced the formation of a new advisory group to prepare skilled manpower in new technology like blockchain.
The New Technologies in Education (NTiE) is a collaboration between the government and the University of Gibraltar with several leading tech companies in the country, which aims to catch up with the growing in demand of skilled workers in new technologies.
Focusing on the creation of new courses related to new technologies, Nadine Collado from the University of Gibraltar said that the university is committed to develop expertise in technologies such as blockchain, distributed ledger technology, coding and smart contracts across the education sector.
The government has a high expectation of how the new courses will equip participants with relevant working skills as the course material will come from companies that are currently waiting for the approval of the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission to become regulated license holders in the country, as reported by local media, Gibraltar Chronicle.
With the courses expected to kick off soon before the year ends, it seems like Gibraltar is hit by the blockchain FOMO.
