– Digital Futures | Jonathan Lindon
Digital Futures is an educational movement seeking to harness the expertise of the industry to train and employ the young innovators, makers and doers of tomorrow - today. We’re working to create a community of supporting companies, industry experts and employers, who are interested in addressing the digital skills gap, whilst offering opportunities to one of our digital apprentices.
The reason we started Digital Futures is because we saw a disconnect with what students were being taught, compared to the skills they needed to get a job in the digital industry.
