Mind the Skills Gap: How to Develop Your Talent Pipeline

Joanna Wake, RAW Digital Training, Scott Urwin, Baltic Apprenticeships, Jayne Walsh, Mediaworks and Jess Booth, Aspire Technology Solutions.Skills & Workforce Culture

How can we bridge the digital skills gap? In this Q&A panel discussion, we’ll dive into the digital skills shortage and share what works when it comes to building a talent pipeline.

The session will cover the issue of talent shortages in the Digital Marketing, IT and Software Development fields, and offer practical strategies to overcome this.

We’ll be hearing from local businesses, Mediaworks and Aspire Technology Solutions, who have successfully incorporated apprenticeship programmes into their training and hiring strategy: sharing the challenges, success stories and lessons they have learned along the way.

From solving recruitment challenges to tackling regional youth unemployment and growing your own talent, we’ll explore big ideas and share actionable knowledge that can be applied to your business.

The session will be chaired by Joanna Wake from RAW Digital Training and Scott Urwin from Baltic Apprenticeships. There will be an informal panel discussion followed by an open Q&A.

Wed 12:00 am - 12:00 am
