Digital Talent Programme
Launched in October 2017 the £7m Digital Talent Programme offers training opportunities for young people and focuses on supporting women’s and ethnic minority groups to gain the skills needed to find employment within London’s digital, technology and creative sectors.
The Digital Talent Programme received the majority of its funding from the LEAP with the aim to help improve on the 17 per cent women that work within the industry.
The programme also plans on increasing opportunities for Londoners from disadvantaged communities and increase the number of Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities into working within crucial sectors for the capital’s economy.
The programme will support 1,500 young Londoners; offering work placements, creating tailored learning opportunities, assisting university students and helping businesses access the skills they need.
Of the £5m LEAP Funding, £700k has been spent and 111 individuals have commenced training.
