WeAreDotDotDot launches: connecting young people to digital learning and employment opportunities in Tech City
WeAreDotDotDot is a free online platform which brings together young people, digital learning programmes and employers, and has launched today as part of Centre for London’s ‘Connecting Tech City‘ initiative, which has been running for the last year.
WeAreDotDotDot allows schools to connect their pupils with digital learning platforms which are then linked to digital companies in the area. This will provide startups with access to local talent and fantastic job opportunities for young people from the London boroughs of Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Islington, pivotal to the continued growth of the Tech City cluster.
The recent Connecting Tech City report from Centre for London documented the boom in digital startups in the East London area over the last 10 years; the need for a better way for youg people to engage in digital businesses and opportunities; and digital learning platforms which aim to provide the skills necessary for young people to work with young companies. WeAreDotDotDot was launched following the recommendations from the report and is supported by Centre for London, Tech City UK and the GLA.
Our DBA users featured in the video show exactly why WeAreDotDotDot is such a valuable asset to the East London community – their testimonies showing how provision of online learning tools can provide valuable opportunities to help entrepreneurs accelerate their business ideas.
