Modern public sector organisations recognise that they need staff with excellent digital skills in order to thrive. LOTI boroughs have committed to working together to build London’s digital talent pool by offering at least 100 digital apprenticeships in LOTI member boroughs by September 2020.
Our project began by creating a playbook on how to design and recruit for a successful digital apprenticeships scheme, based on the experience of Hackey’s successful work in this area.
We now convene and support networks for LOTI boroughs’ digital apprentices and their managers. In partnership with Microsoft, LOTI hold regular virtual learning sessions for digital apprentices. These sessions are an opportunity to support this cohort of future digital leaders to develop their professional careers and interpersonal skills.
