Tech Up Nation
The digital industry, based around London’s Old St, is one of London’s fastest growing industries, but too often it imports talent rather than nurtures it. The rapid economic growth, being generated by over 2,000 companies, co-exists with high levels of youth unemployment in the same area of east London. Tech Up Nation is an employer-led project that works with London’s fast-growing tech sector to create awareness and access to apprenticeships for young adults through pre-employment training projects.
258 young Londoners engaged with pre-apprenticeship training to build a wide base of employment skills
103 businesses engaged with Tech up Nation are offering apprenticeships
