With the demand for great, diverse tech talent, companies are realising the best way to get great talent is to find and grow their own through retraining, returners and career-conversion courses or through apprenticeships.
But while many companies want to do this, they aren't sure where to start. This is particularly true for small and medium businesses.
This session will help you learn how to design and deliver great programmes that will help you build great teams *and* drive diversity in your company. This isn't a sales pitch or just talking about theory, we'll focus on practical tips and ideas you can use in your own company.
Hear from employers, suppliers and people who have been through training programmes. They will explain how they developed programmes, what went right *and* what went wrong. The panel discussion will be followed by the option to join smaller breakout room discussions to ask questions of panellists and other members.
What you'll learn:
- How to create a programme that will work
- How to find the right delivery partner
- How to attract the right people
- How to avoid common pitfalls
Participants will have the opportunity to ask specific questions to panellists and to collaborate in virtual break out rooms at the end.
Panel includes Ben Sweetman, Director of Learning at QA, Adam Leach, Chief Information Officer at Nominet, Clare Streets , Associate Director at B13 Technology and Debbie Forster, MBE.
