This is Milk is launching a 12-month career development programme in Glasgow on 29 May 2018. This programme has been designed with industry to tackle the digital skills gap that exists and is crippling digital projects in Scotland.
Scotland has a digital industry that has been invested into with the value of £13.8 billion with an acknowledge skills gap issue that we are currently unequipped to solve. The This is Milk Digital Transformation Programme has been designed as a solution to this issue by teaching the skills required to successfully facilitate digital projects and excel in careers including: Business Analysis, Service Design, User Research, Product Management, Digital Planning, & Strategy.
We are empowering ownership and development of personal career paths to create a mass of skilled and enthusiastic changemakers that will to drive digital transformation in Scottish businesses and beyond.
"Digital projects have outgrown the talent pool and traditional project roles don't perform the job we need today or for the future. We're creating a new job and a way to build up the available talent in Scotland and beyond. This job role fills a massive skills gap in the market and is the solution that businesses have been looking for." - Angela Prentner-Smith Managing Director of This is Milk
"A key factor in the failure to deliver the programmes as intended was the public sector bodies' lack of specialist skills and experience" - Audit Scotland
The Digital Transformation Programme opens its doors to businesses looking to upskill their existing staff working in digital projects. The industries we are specifically looking at include Financial Services, Technology, and the Creative Industries. The 1st cohort will be inducted on 29 May, with more information available at www.thisismilk.co.uk
