The purpose of this sector group is to bring together training providers who are either currently delivering or plan to deliver the new Digital Apprenticeship Standards - and support these organisations to grow their provision.

This forum will:

1. Connect like-minded training providers operating across the digital skills landscape;

2. Enable training providers to understand the strategic context of the Greater Manchester Digital Strategy, including how digital standards map onto the current GM labour market & growth opportunities;

3. Hear directly from training providers who have started to deliver the new digital standards - ie. rationale, systems, challenges/opportunities, lessons learned, what the future looks like etc;

4. Share best practice & ideas to grow the volume of digital standards delivered.

The forum is a part of the Greater Manchester & Cheshire Vocational Education and Training (VET) Professional Exchange - designed to help training providers adapt and grow during the reforms.

NB - If your organisation is not registered on the Professional Exchange we will forward a registration document to you in advance of this meeting.
