The Tezos Foundation, overseers of the Tezos liquid proof-of-stake blockchain protocol, recently announced a grants program to support the training of 1,000 Tezos-focused developers and this week it was announced that Kingsland University School of Blockchain will partner with the Tezos Foundation to realize its training and industry growth goals.
As a part of the partnership, Kingsland will collaborate with developers that worked on the Tezos mainnet to develop and update a Tezos-focused blockchain developer curriculum. This curriculum specialization will also be integrated into Kingsland’s blockchain engineering programs.
“The Tezos Foundation is truly committed to growing the ecosystem to support a more equitable and exciting global future. The Kingsland-Tezos Foundation partnership highlights the importance of industry-aligned training curricula and addresses the critical shortage of developers in the space. Working together we will ensure a future for blockchain and create thousands of career opportunities for developers around the world.”
The partnership will see a series of global events, hackathons, project incubation, and courses rolled out in financial centers around the world in 2019. Scholarships provided by the Tezos Foundation will enable more students to access the world’s first accredited blockchain curriculum with Tezos specialization.
Kingsland will also support recruiting students into the Tezos curriculum specialization and place them into jobs that support the overall growth of the Tezos protocol and ecosystem. Tezos-focused blockchain engineering courses are scheduled to launch in 2019.
“Kingsland has a demonstrated track record of delivering high-quality, work-ready blockchain development programs and we’re excited to work with them to support the long-term success of the Tezos ecosystem. We believe that the new wave of 1,000 developers that are being trained in 2019 will help Tezos’ robust ecosystem continue to grow and gain adoption.”
