New funding opportunity: Accenture 19/20 Future-Friendly Skills for Work
Do you support people with digital skills relating to work and employment? In partnership with Accenture and our Online Centres Network, we want to engage and support 1,400 people to re-skill as digital technology continues to change our jobs and workplaces.
With grants of £2,800, this is an exciting, exploratory project which will deliver:
- Re-skilling opportunities to 1,400 people across the UK
- Resources to participating Online Centres to improve their role in re-skilling local people
- A practical toolkit, and a policy research report, based on evaluation findings.
This project is aimed at individuals aged 30-50 with no, low or limited digital skills or confidence who are interested in building their digital capability to be ready for future job opportunities.
We aim to fund 15-20 Online Centres to take part. Successful centres will:
- Learn through trialling new approaches and participating in the evaluation
- Identify and involve participants from the target group (for example, through links or referrals from local employers, JobCentre Plus)
- Develop learning journeys and support participants to build their digital skills, confidence and capability for work
- Help participants to understand the changing world of work and be ready for this.
Applications close Friday 6 September at 5:30pm.
