Warrington Digital Skills Partnership, a Government-led initiative aiming to increase the digital capability of individuals and organisations, has been launched.
It will be delivered locally by Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The event, at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, saw more than 70 businesses attend to learn more about how the Local Digital Skills Partnership (Local DSP) will accelerate digital skills capacity in Cheshire and Warrington.
Demonstrating existing projects, guests met teams from Digital and Computing Science students from Priestley College and Crewe University Technical College (UTC), along with Bentley Motors and Daresbury SciTech.
Senior representatives from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), joined headline speaker Maggie Philbin, the former Tomorrow’s World TV presenter and now chief executive of Teentech which helps young people understand the opportunities in the science, technology and engineering industries.
