Skills

 

We are really passionate about plugging the skills gap and have created a number of initiatives including Digital Gum to inspire young adults to pursue careers as digital apprentices and up-skill parents looking to return to work. We also champion the STEAM agenda through our Green Meets Grey project.

Return to work

Unlocking return to work digital skills

Did you know your skills are in high demand? During our recent skills survey there was a resounding ‘yes’ from employers to having more return to work candidates applying for their digital jobs. We do however understand that it can feel a little overwhelming to know where to start the return to work process. That’s why we have launched a digital skills initiative to fast track you back into work.

In just 6 weeks of part time learning we will teach you the digital skills needed, work with you to boost your confidence and you’ll also walk away with a killer CV. We will also introduce you to local employers crying out for your skills.

Green Meets Grey

We believe in STEAM not STEM – “You need to bring art and science back together. Think back to the glory days of the Victorian era. It was a time when the same people wrote poetry and built bridges..” Eric Schmidt, Google Executive Chairman.  Closing the skills gap is a two way process which is why the Greens meet the Greys.
