Are you equipped with the digital and soft skills necessary to thrive in the new economy?
Whether you are a start-up founder, executive, manager, employee or student who is about to begin your journey into the world of work, the skills you need to prosper and thrive in today’s digital world have changed.
New technology is being developed at lightning speeds and yet the growth of the necessary digital and soft skills has not kept pace with the ever-accelerating digital economy. This digital skills gap could cost the UK economy £141 billion in GDP growth according to Accenture.
Great news! The FREE Digital Skills Workshop by Facebook (in partnership with Buzzstart Academy) is coming to Braintree Campus on Tuesday 19th November to help equip you with some of the fundamental digital skills needed in the new economy and you are invited!
Are you able to help for 5 evenings in Nov and Dec 2019?
Teledyne e2v (Te2v) and CSES are launching an engineering challenge that will see local schools working with Te2v apprentices and CSES volunteers to develop prototype solutions to real engineering problems faced by Te2v production staff.
This will be a pilot scheme which, if successful, will be run annually. We are starting with a small number of local schools and need CSES volunteers to help the apprentices to mentor the student teams.
Can you help? Remember that any time spent volunteering counts as Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
