GET DIGITALL - SUPPORTING DIVERSITY IN THE DIGITAL SECTOR
Date: 25 July 2018
LOCATION: CodeClan, 37 Castle Terrace,
Edinburgh, EH1 2EL
Supported by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Get DigitALL is an
18-month programme of targeted opportunity and training
interventions to close the digital skills gap for disadvantaged
young people and enable them to respond to emerging jobs.
Now the project is coming to a close, the Get DigitALL partners
would love to share the success and learning from the project with
employers. Attendees will hear from partners, employers and of
course young people involved in the project, as well as hearing
about future plans to support employers interested in hiring young
people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Operational partners include the City of Edinburgh Council,
Digital Skills Academy, CodeClan, Intowork and Capital City
Partnership. The overall project is led by the Council's
Employability and Talent Development (ETD) team.
The programme featured two main project areas - digital
up-skilling for young people without a positive destination (Cre8te
Opportunities) and providing places on CodeClan's 16-week course
for young people on the autistic spectrum (CodeClan and Intowork).
This included working with employers such as BT to place people in
to work placements and job opportunities.
