Campaign to improve links
THE DIGITAL Skills Action Plan aims to improve links between employers and education providers.
They will work together to design better work placements and experience, improve careers advice and promote the sector in Leeds.
The plan will also support the extension of code clubs to all primary schools in the city.
Other activities include digital careers fairs in Leeds and London, ‘ bootcamps’ to get people job- ready, a new digital graduate scheme and the promotion of new apprenticeship standards to employers.
The head of a London- based tech training organisation said Leeds is ahead of many other cities in its joined- up approach.
