Our Digital Skills Programme

Loughborough University London is working to support London-based start-ups and SMEs scale and grow through a two-part programme aimed at boosting digital skills.

The Digital Skills programme is a free two-part project funded by the GLA and the EU with the aim to improve digital skills. It offers online workshops and the chance to set virtual work insight projects for our students.

Digital skills workshops

Designed for London-based start-ups and SMEs, our virtual digital skills workshops will improve your organisation's digital capacity with a range of activities taking place online. Workshops and virtual meetups will be on offer throughout the year.

What will you learn?

  • How you can use data to improve business output
  • How digital tools can help scale your business
  • How you can increase the attractiveness of your offer through digital tools

Work insight projects

As part of the Digital Skills programme, you can offer a work insight project to a Loughborough University London master's student.

Companies must agree to:

  • Outline the digital work insight project
  • Offer a minimum of a 30 hour insight project to a Loughborough University London master's student
  • Confirm that the student completed the project and offer an endorsement to the student for their input on the project.

Please note: this round of Digital Skills Work Insight Projects has now closed for organisation submissions, but we will be onboarding external project partners from August 2021 to commence activities in Sept/Oct 2021. Register now and we'll be in touch later in the year to discuss potential projects and to share information about upcoming workshops.
