The BBC’s Make It Digital traineeship programme comes to Sheffield and Rotherham

Local firms are invited to take on work experience trainees from the Make It Digital programme in November.

The BBC have teamed up with Capita Talent Partnerships to deliver the Make It Digital programme in Sheffield and Rotherham. We have received details about the initiative from Chris Johnson, the Employer Engagement Officer at Capita TP, which we’d like to share with the community.

The Make It Digital traineeship programme is a course for young people aged between 16 and 24 who are not currently in work or employment, to give them a basic grounding in workplace and Internet-related skills, and for them to then spend approximately 3 weeks (100 hours) on supported work experience in a local firm.

The course begins on 19th October and will last for 5 weeks, followed by the work placement. They are looking to take on roughly 10 candidates in the first intake.

Capita TP have provided a one-pager explaining the traineeship programme, including what skills the students will cover, which you can download from this page:
