Collaborated with partners across the public, private and third sectors to identify the key barriers young people face in accessing digital skills.

Developed a solution which harnessed Accenture's expertise in learning and design thinking.

Partnered with the UK’s leading Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) provider, FutureLearn, to develop a social learning experience.

While piloted to young job seekers and entrepreneurs, it is just as applicable to young people first entering the workplace or business, as it is to those returning to work or looking to reskill.
