Digital Apprenticeships in Wales – linking young people to the growing digital sector

08 March @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Newport

Join us at the home of Innovation Point and the National Software Academy in Newport to discuss the growing importance of the role of Digital apprentices to bring the next generation of appropriately skilled young people into the Welsh digital economy.

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 for a win-win, providing both the employer with new talent and the young people with a varied and exciting learning experience.

Join our lead discussants, including Dave Randell, Employer Engagement Manager at the risual Microsoft Academy at Cardiff and Vale College and Damon Rands of Wolfberry Cyber for the discussion on Higher Level Apprenticeships associated with digital skills and the Welsh public and private sector’s demand for such skills as well as new initiatives in our Colleges and Universities developing courses like digital and cyber security apprenticeships to meet this industry demand.

Please register your interest in attending the Salon in advance, to avoid disappointment.

The salon will be followed by the networking drinks.
