ABOUT THE TRAIN4TOMORROW PROGRAMME
Train4Tomorrow offers free, high quality, digital and technical training to employed and unemployed adults in Devon, Plymouth, Somerset, Torbay, Cornwall and Dorset. The training is designed by industry employers to meet their open and live vacancies.
The programme, funded through the National Skills Fund, includes digital and technical bootcamps that have been designed to help local people advance or pivot their skills into growing sectors resilient to the current economic downturn. You can find out more about the programme here.
The latest cohort of Train4Tomorrow bootcamps are now concluding and, at our free-to-attend online jobs fair, we will connect local employers with the highly skilled talent completing the bootcamps.
ABOUT THE JOB FAIR
Train4Tomorrow are running an online Digital Jobs Fair on 16th March, which will run from 9am to 1pm, giving learners the chance to speak to as many different local employers as possible.
Local employers are invited to have their own virtual table, which will be attended by up to 6 learners at a time, for 15 minutes slots. Here, employers can showcase their business, promote vacancies and meet with potential candidates - you could even arrange future interviews or conduct mini interviews on the day.
Throughout the day there will also be speakers, from a range of industries, giving talks on inspiring topics.
A detailed plan of the jobs fairs timetables and how to navigate the online platform will be sent to learners and employers ahead of the event, and will be available online.
