FastFutures Programme launches
29th July 2020

A new digital skills programme backed by leading global employers has launched to help prevent a lost generation of education leavers.

FastFutures is a ground-breaking digital and personal skills programme, coaching education leavers on vital workplace skills. The programme is designed to provide participants with the skills employers value now and in the future, in turn futureproofing careers and limiting a potentially damaging skills gap.

The inaugural 12-week programme is being launched with 1,000 free places funded by the founding employers. Additional cohorts of a smiliar size are expected in the months ahead as more business partners join the programme, and details finalised as to how the programme will work with LEPs across the country.

Successful applicants can expect a combination of online modules, site visits to founding employer workplaces, coaching and mentoring from business experts. Topics that will be covered include practical business project, the role of data in a commercial setting, marketing and a basic understanding of finance.

Applications for the programme are open now and close on Thursday 13th August 2020. Applications will remain open for future cohorts. Further details are available at http://www.avadolearning.com/fastfutures.
