It is a new world that we are living in, a hyper digital world. This has dramatically brought the need for all businesses to embrace the digital transformation and invest in upskilling workforces. These skills for jobs are at the forefront of both professionals and business leaders minds.

Whether you are a small business, a freelancer, a sole trader or on the furlough scheme, and whether you work in the private or public sector, being able to excel in your job and tomorrow’s workforce requires developing digital competences and leadership knowhow.

The recently published White Paper ‘Skills for Jobs’ emphasise the need to ensure access to flexible training for all through innovative approaches such as online and remote learning. There is real ambition to invest in vocational learning to meet the skills gaps that exist now and in the future. It will only enhance businesses and the UK's ability to compete in the global economy and provide people with more sustainable careers.

By attending this event, you will get an understanding of the free training opportunities available through the DAGILE Project. All we ask is that you invest your time and study commitment into your learning and development to help you better navigate the landscape of today and tomorrow’s job market.

The benefits of joining the DAGILE project include:

  • expert tuition from corporate lecturers in a number of subject areas relating to the digital economy
  • accredited qualifications from OCN London on a wide range of short courses aimed at bridging any digital skills gap, improve in-job progression and enhance career prospects
