THE Digital Skills Academy has announced an academic collaboration with Mexican University, El Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente (ITESO).

It came as President Michael D Higgins continues his official visit to Central America this week.

The academy is a leading digital technology education provider in Ireland and the agreement will involve its Mexican collaborator delivering technology programmes here.

The agreement, which will create 30 new jobs in Ireland, was signed at an event attended by Mr Higgins, President of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto and Joe Costello.
