Midland’s first casino school is expected to open next month at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College’s Bermuda Park Innovation Center in Nuneaton. According to organizers, the gaming academy will represent important job opportunities for community members who wish to be part of the gambling world.
On October 3, the academy will hold an open day in order to present its courses and provide more information about its syllabus to potential students who want to become croupiers. Graham Hollowell, deputy executive director for Connexions Coventry, has been invited to the event. Staff from Jobcenter Plus, New Deal and several casinos will be visiting the site too.
"Whatever your views on gambling, you cannot deny that this is a major industry nationally and its impact on the local economy and job market can only get bigger,” Hollowell said about the academy. There is only another gambling school in Britain, more exactly in London, and the Nuneaton Academy will be the first one outside the capital.
College chiefs said that a new coordinator was recently appointed to supervise the planning, construction, launch and operation of the new gambling academy.
