Event details

If you want to develop your digital skills and increase your online presence, our event could be perfect for you.

Our Employability and Apprenticeship teams are hosting an event to help you understand how to improve your digital marketing and grow your digital presence, with skills and talent provided through NTU and the GRADS for D2N2 project*. This will all link to increasing your target market and customer base, both of which are critical focuses for SMEs.

The No Longer Optional: Employer Demand for Digital Skills report revealed that around 82% of all jobs in the UK list digital skills as a requirement. They also pay 29% more, on average, than those that don’t require these skills (£37,000 vs £28,000 a year). Despite this, employers struggled to fill one-third of vacancies last year due to a lack of digital competency, highlighting a significant discrepancy between skill supply and demand in the UK. – Department for Culture, Media and Sport

We're really looking forward to bringing people together again for face-to-face networking and learning about our funded support for SMEs, at this fantastic new venue based in Worksop, Bassetlaw.
