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 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”.
