We have a goal!

Over the next 12 months, we will work with our network of partners to raise £15m in levy transfers, funding 1,000 apprenticeship opportunities, helping people across the country to begin a career in tech.

Large levy paying organisations are urged to pledge unspent levy funds to support small businesses in recruiting and developing this talent and therefore thriving in the digital economy and becoming even more productive.

QA are plugged into communities and people of all backgrounds, and we believe that everyone with a spark and passion can thrive in a tech role with the right support.

Through the TCC initiative, QA will connect the dots, and bring together levy paying organisations, diverse, capable and ambitious individuals, and small and medium sized businesses throughout England to create a sustainable solution to our nation’s skills gap and productivity challenges.
