OUR FIRST EVENT FOR 2020 – A BREAKFAST MEETING AT THE HOLIDAY INN – WESTFIELD STRATFORD CITY – FRIDAY, JANUARY 31ST, 7 AM – 9.15 AM

What’s the future for digital skills?

That’s the question being asked – and answered – at our first breakfast of the year, which is kindly being SPONSORED BY STRATFORD-BASED DIGITAL SKILLS UK

The first business breakfast meeting of 2020 has been upgraded to a “must attend” meeting. This is a rare action, but we now know that major policy decisions have been taken by Newham Council, Newham College and Stratford-based sponsors Digital Skills Solutions that can impact on every local business. Genuine new opportunities to thrive are being created for you.

Councillor Steve Brayshaw, who has the skills remit for the London Borough of Newham, will launch the borough’s groundbreaking initiative, in partnership with Newham College of Further Education and Digital Skills Solutions. It involves the council sharing its apprenticeship funding with the borough’s SMEs and residents. With some Newham companies already involved in the initial pilot, it is expected the initiative’s rollout will encourage an increasing number of local businesses and residents to actively engage in the apprenticeship scheme and the benefits it delivers.

Additionally, Digital Skills Solutions will evaluate the critical role of apprenticeships in creating new talent and introduce a number of actions to boost digital skills in the workplace. This includes a demonstration of an innovative online training product containing key content for all aspects of businesses, as well as evening classroom-based training to accommodate everyone wishing to strengthen their digital skills. AND the Chamber will be briefing you on major changes on tendering for council projects.

FINALLY, Eleanor Riley will be giving a short talk on Aim Skills Development, a small Government business which aims to get young adults back into work.
