Get DigitALL - Supporting Diversity in the Digital Sector

3 October 2018

Get DigitALL is an 18-month programme of targeted opportunity and training interventions to close the digital skills gap for disadvantaged young people and enable them to respond to emerging jobs.

Operational partners include the City of Edinburgh Council, Digital Skills Academy, CodeClan, Intowork and Capital City Partnership. The overall project is led by the Council's Employability and Talent Development (ETD) team.

The programme featured two main project areas - digital up-skilling for young people without a positive destination (Cre8te Opportunities) and providing places on CodeClan's 16-week course for young people on the autistic spectrum (CodeClan and Intowork). This included working with employers such as BT to place people in to work placements and job opportunities.

Now the project is coming to a close, the Get DigitALL partners would love to share the success and learning from the project with employers. Attendees will hear from partners, employers and of course young people involved in the project, as well as hearing about future plans to support employers interested in hiring young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The event will take place on Wednesday 3 October, from 6pm - 8pm at CodeClan, 37 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2EL.
