A new webinar event is set to explore how businesses from a range of sectors can reboot their digital skills capabilities.
The ‘Digital Reboot for Business – upskill, reskill and recruit’’ webinar, hosted by Heriot-Watt University on 29th October, will feature a number of speakers including Digital Business Strategist, Sara Dodd.
Dodd, who was formerly Head of Data Programmes at digital skills academy, CodeClan, will discuss some of the emerging skills in data and technology that modern businesses require and need to be aware of – including Data Science and Software Development.
This session will also explore how organisations can adopt a ‘digital mindset’ and embrace digital transformation.
On the day, Dodd will be joined by Sandy Murray, Director of Graduate Apprenticeships at Heriot-Watt. Murray will provide attendees with an insight into how the university’s Graduate Apprenticeships can help build digital skills and support talented people with hands-on work experience.
Commenting on the webinar launch, Murray said: “In our daily discussions with our employer partners it’s clear that the demand for digital skills is growing – whether this on the software development side or data analysis.
“And it’s also becoming increasingly obvious that this is across all sectors of industry, not just the technology community.
“Our Graduate Apprenticeships programmes are an ideal way to upskill existing employees or recruit new young talent into the workforce.”
The webinar will last for 30-40 minutes and include an interactive Q&A session where attendees can participate and pose questions.
