This week has been Learning at Work Week, a week dedicated to continuous personal and professional development in the workplace.
To mark the occasion, GC Education and Skills and Skills for Growth – SME Support has joined forces to launch a bundle of IT and Digital apprenticeships for businesses across the city region. Apprenticeships available include Junior Content Producer, Digital Marketer and Digital Support Technician to name but a few.
All courses are fully funded, meaning there’s no cost to organisations who want to upskill their existing teams or bring in fresh talent.
According to the Learning and Work Institute, 92% of organisations say that digital skills are key for the business’ success – however, 37% of businesses are lacking advanced digital skills, which highlights the importance of apprenticeships in helping to narrow the skills gap.
As part of the joint offer, businesses will receive tailored support to help them get the most out of the apprenticeship – including access to workshops and events.
