Informed Solutions’ Seth Finegan to Speak on Digital Leaders TV: “Digital Apprenticeships” Segment

On the 10th March at 3:00pm – 4.00 pm, UK CEO Seth Finegan will be speaking on the ‘Digital Leaders TV: Digital Apprenticeships’ show, to explore the topic of apprenticeships in the Digital Sector…

Across Government, the private and non-profit sectors, there is a growing recognition of the opportunity offered by apprenticeship schemes, offering benefits for employers accessing developing fresh talent and for young people gaining a varied and exciting learning experience.

The show will be hosted by BBC Click’s, Kate Russell and Seth will be joined by a panel of digital experts including Dr Adam Beaumont, Founder and CEO of aql and Ann Pickering, HR Director at O2. Sign up to the broadcast at http://digileaders.com/events/dltv-digital-apprentices/ and tune in on Youtube on Friday.

The discussion will encompass a number of key points:

  - Why Apprenticeships are coming back into fashion, is the Digital Sector a good place for them?

  - How to attract young talent into business and how to nurture it – will they stay with you or is it accepted in the Digital sector that they will leave?

  - Practical examples of previous successes.

  - There is a lot of discussion about bringing more women into the digital sector. Will Apprenticeships contribute to this cause at all?

Speaking of the upcoming show, Seth has commented:

“It is essential that Digital Leaders across the UK rally to nurture young talent if we are to address a growing digital skills gap. Apprenticeships are increasingly empowering young, talented individuals and provide a credible alternative to university education and we should be doing all we can to support the initiative”.
