Digital Apprenticeships – Tackling the digital skills gap in the West Midlands

Written by Sandy Simcox, Digital Leaders West Midlands Regional Lead

Whether in Government, the private sector or non-profit, there is a growing recognition of the opportunity offered by those not going to university or those combining university with an apprenticeship. It is a win-win, providing the employer with new talent and the young people with a varied and exciting learning experience.

Joined by our lead discussants including Andrew Cleaves, CEO and Principal at Birmingham Metropolitan College and Jennifer Ingram, Organisational Development Manager at SCC, digital leaders in Birmingham discussed:

  • How to attract talent
  • Available funding
  • The new apprentice levy
  • Practical examples of local success
