Macclesfield College Digital Skills Hub
In response to both national and regional feedback from businesses, and to achieve success for employers within Cheshire, the College’s Digital Skills Hub will provide opportunities for a range of skills development and expertise. The project is split into five areas: agile project management; UX/UI user experience and user interface design; cyber-security; coding; and robotics. It will be for mixed use by both learners within an education setting and from businesses across the region, but will also include a mobile element which will prioritise the development of foundation skills that will underpin all essential digital skills.
The digital enhancements and programmes that will be offered and supported by the Hub will contribute towards the wider objective of linking the areas’ digital capabilities to drive digital developments in key sectors across the economy. Through close collaboration with employers, the Hub will deliver more relevant and job-related training befitting the skills requirements. The Hub will also develop an outreach programme and community-based offer.
