SYNOPSIS

Early Careers in Digital and IT is more than just getting young people interested in an ICT based career. There are many people now looking to reskill or upskill in order to transition to digital and IT roles or some change from a previous role to something new where they need support and training.

What can organisations do to help new recruits of any age become valuable members of their digital and IT teams? From Skills Bridges for those transition, Adult Education for those upskilling to apprenticeships and the role of the Institute of Technologies for those starting out – this webinar will give you some ideas of what you can do next.
