Warrington schools and colleges are part of a new project to help increase digital skills within communities.
UTC Warrington, along with partner colleges Cheshire College and Warrington and Vale Royal College, are on a mission to provide practical, creative spaces that encourage communities to embrace future ways of working and living.
The UTC and further education colleges in Cheshire and Warrington have received a grant of over £15,000 from the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to help increase important skills through their new project, Stream.
Stream aims to raise awareness and develop confidence in digital applications and equip local people with the skills needed to help them start new careers in the ever-growing technology sector.
Over 500,000 Cheshire and Warrington residents are set to benefit from specialist equipment, accessible in a range of local areas from libraries and community centres to ‘pop-up cafes.’
This will enable wider access and participation in skills development and training programmes, including the ability to deliver and record live broadcasts and interactive question and answer sessions.
