Beacon Bingo Partners with University of Derby

By Asin Agrawal - February 23 2011

Both live and online bingo is very big business indeed and while you may only know the Beacon Bingo Brand from playing at their online site, there is much more to them than this. They are also one of the larger and more experienced gaming operations in the UK and Europe and they have taken the unique opportunity to partner with the University of Derby to offer an Advanced Diploma in Leisure Retail Management.

In the UK alone, the bingo business is valued at approximately £1.7 billion. Even though it is a low stakes game considered to be "soft" gambling, bingo generates some very serious business. This vocational course is aimed at training Assistant Managers through all aspects of the industry. It is a full 12 months, projects-based course and Beacon Bingo has worked very closely with the University to ensure a comprehensive qualification which will provide an excellent base for a career in management in the UK bingo industry.

The parent company of Beacon Bingo – Praesepe is committed to investing in its people, something we can certainly see with regards to this important move towards developing potential talent. CEO – Nick Harding is delighted with their initiative and who knows, perhaps we shall see a whole slew of young people getting involved in their own bingo business. Unemployment is always an issue, but at a time when unemployment is at a record high, once again, the importance of imparting knowledge and skills transfer cannot be sufficiently stressed.

In the meantime if you are keen on checking out the Beacon Bingo site, visit them today and take advantage of a 100% first deposit bonus to welcome newbies, free bingo games every Sunday in the Cricklewood room, Superbooks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, big bingo linx daily plus a Super Bingo Linx game at the end of every month. They also just gave away a romantic trip for two to Paris to "Mrsbenny12", to celebrate Valentines Day. This bingo site is well worth a look so why not take a peek today and see what you think?
