The Digital Talent programme, funded by J.P. Morgan, will be delivered from January 2022 to March 2023 through an exciting partnership between our member youth organisations, London Youth, training providers and corporates.
Why are we passionate about digital and tech?
These sectors are the future. And despite a 40% growth in the last two years in the UK Tech sector, there is a significant skills shortage. Crucially, young people from London Youth’s target group are underrepresented in this sector.
There is the opportunity to capitalise on ever-growing demand, by training young people to “plug this gap” and help them to secure jobs of the future. We want to take away barriers like jargon, lack of exposure and professional experience.
We also recognise that the traditional route of university does not appeal or feel accessible to many young people. That’s why we also aim to support young people in thinking of alternatives routes that suite them- by offering access to training, qualifications, and work experience.
