£1m Funding Opportunity under the Mayor’s Digital Talent Programme

07 June 2018

On 24 May the Greater London Authority launched a £1m funding opportunity as part of the Mayor’s Digital Talent Programme, co-funded by the London Economic Action Partnership and the European Social Fund.

‘Creating Opportunity: Higher Level Digital Skills in London’s Knowledge Economy’ aims to improve the labour market relevance of higher level digital skills training (at level 4 and above) in  London. It will do this by funding a suite of collaborative activities between start-ups, Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs), micro-enterprises (micros), and higher level digital skills providers. These activities will:

· Improve business engagement with the skills system;

· Enable the design of skills provision that will help students and graduates gain industry relevant experience and skills; and

· Improve partnerships between skills providers and businesses.
