Microsoft and FIT have come together to develop Youth2Work. A training and developmental programme targeted for 18 – 25 year olds, giving them information advice and access to ‘in-demand’ skills, work experience and interview and CV development support. Complementing existing government funded interventions, it aims to reach 10,000 young people over the next three years
FIT’s mission is to promote an inclusive Smart Economy by creating a fast track to marketable technical skills for those at risk of unemployment long term. It is the primary industry skills development initiative facilitating collaboration with government, education and training providers and disadvantaged communities to enable greater access to employment for marginalised job seekers.
FIT ICT Skills Audit
The FIT ICT Skills Audit was undertaken in response to the unprecedented number of unfilled vacancies in the ICT sector. The findings are significant and provide valuable insights for policy makers, the education and training sector and for ICT sector companies.
