Young people urged to sign up to scheme to help meet the demand for digital
The BBC has teamed up with Northampton College to give 50 young people the chance to secure the job of their dreams thanks to a new digital traineeship programme.
The ‘Make It Digital’ scheme, which launches next month, will see 25 young people in Northampton and another 25 in Kettering given the opportunity to complete an eight week course, split between college and an employer.
The students will learn the skills they need to carry out a series of workplace tasks, from building web pages and filming viral videos to implementing social media campaigns and creating email newsletters.
