Emphasys Centre was established in 1998 and operates as an Education, ICT Training (VET) and Research Centre.
As an ICT Education and Vocational Training Centre approved by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports, Emphasys offers high quality training courses to professionals, adults, teachers, young people and students in the field of ICT, both in Cyprus, but also for EU participants through the Erasmus+ KA1 learning mobility courses. More specifically, it offers specialized courses for professional development, validated courses for the acquisition of professional qualifications, as well as courses for students aiming to enter higher education institutions (universities) in the UK, Greece and Cyprus.
Two Units targeting the digital needs of the labour market and bridging the gap between education and the world of work are set up:
– The STEAM, CODING and ROBOTICS UNIT, which is fully equipped with high tech tools in order to offer project-driven related courses to young people combining Robotics (Edison, Arduino, Lego Mindstorms), 3D Design and Printing using the Craftbot+ 3D Printer, and Coding through Video Game design, using state of the art Virtual Reality Headsets such as the Oculus Rift S, guided by ‘Lego Education Trainer’ instructors.
– The ONE STOP DIGITAL SUPPORT CENTRE, which provides various opportunities, both online and offline, for the acquisition of digital, employability and entrepreneurial skills for adults and young people.
As a Research Centre, Emphasys is actively involved in the preparation and submission of research proposals, as well as in the coordination and implementation of European Programmes such as Erasmus + (KA1, KA2, KA3) in all sectors and actions: Education (School, Higher, Adult), VET and Youth, Justice, AMIF, and others.
