Skills Support for the Workforce Virtual Digital Skills Workshops
As part of the Skills Support for the Workforce & Redundancy (SSW/SSR) project, Serco are funding a virtual workshop aimed at those people who have skills and business conversations with employers within HotSW, Dorset and WoE regions. These workshops will discuss the most effective ways to engage businesses with the Digital Skills Agenda and understand how best to diagnose and meet their digital skills needs. Furloughed staff are able to take part in training with their employers permission.

Designed to support training providers to answer technology questions and engage in conversations, you will learn how new tech is impacting on businesses, how digital technology is changing business growth models and what you can do within your training business to support some of the digital skills needs of the future.

This interactive session will enable you to build out your own question set when talking to employers and develop a credible digital knowledge base.
