Cam­paign to im­prove links

Yorkshire Post - Business - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
