Redbridge Business Breakfast Skills Summit

Redbridge Business Breakfast Skills Summit

Redbridge Local Authority have commissioned a new skills training programme to improve digital literacy and support digital inclusion across the Borough – focusing on employability and work-readiness.

This is an outcomes-led programme to support employers in finding and recruiting newly skilled and motivated local residents. The programme identifies and trains Redbridge residents through a series of employer-led ‘hackathons’ (creative, business-led challenges) that are designed to inspire and digitally up-skill participants, challenging them to develop new local ideas, innovations and technical solutions.

Residents will develop real-world skills in agile, start-up-style business teams, while being supported and mentored by leading employers (Openreach, Transport for London and many more). An end-of-programme ‘Employer Expo’ connects newly-skilled residents to attending employers.

Residents trained on the programme will be connected to hiring employers and pathway partners. Please come along to the Skills Summit and introduce your organisation – discuss your hiring needs and scaling plans.

This event is open to all businesses in Redbridge and other boroughs.
