Strengthening our Digital Talent Pipeline

Digital Talent Pipeline

Our vision is to create a critical mass of digital talent, positioning Greater Manchester as the key place for businesses seeking a digitally-skilled workforce to invest in outside of London.

We will:

  • Inspire young people to think about a career in digital and give them the skills and confidence to do it
  • Future-proof the tech talent pipeline; connecting education and industry through harnessing real role models and industry mentors
  • Ensure that the system of post-16 technical education in Greater Manchester provides young people with a clear pathway defined by employers into all priority digital/ tech occupations
  • Address the immediate digital skills shortage and support employers to diversify their workforce through developing a new model of reskilling and retraining

Main projects:

  • Go Digital (GMCA with Digital Advantage, Hive Learning and InnovateHer) 
  • Digital Futures (GMCA with Manchester Digital and partners) 
  • Fast Track Digital Workforce Fund
