Let's Get Digital -
A 12-week programme that is open to young people aged 16 - 24 from Greater Manchester, with a focus on Tameside, Salford and Trafford who face significant barriers to education, employment or training. Young people with experience of the care system or those presenting mental health issues will also find this project built to support these needs. Let’s Get Digital focuses on developing the key technical and personal skills required to explore and secure employment in the digital sector. The project is blended with real experiences of live briefs, supported work placements, and interviews with potential employers upon completion. As part of the project, the young people will have access to Reform’s well-being manager - Dan, the pastoral care team and other progression opportunities, post-project. The project will give all participants access to live job opportunities and a chance to meet the employers of those jobs, Reform will support the development of these relationships, and all young people who attend will be guaranteed a job interview with one of the employers and in-work support too.
The course starts at the later date of April and is supported by The Prince’s Trust Future Workforce fund.
