Digital Futures

To become a leading digital city, Greater Manchester needs a talent pipeline full of skilled people ready to enter the industry.

Help us future-proof our tech talent pipeline.

Digital Futures is a digital skills, curriculum support and careers insights programme for schools and colleges in Greater Manchester.


It is designed to connect education and industry through harnessing real role models and industry mentors. Over the next two years, we will work with 150 schools to:

  • Inspire more young people to consider careers in digital and technology
  • Support and upskill educators and career leads
  • Deliver a more relevant and engaging curriculum
  • Better understand the job role and opportunities in our industry to help you people and parents make informed decisions.

Play your part. Sign up to become a Digital Futures ambassador and spend as little as 20 minutes helping us support a local school or college. It's important that more learners meet a diversity of people like you who work in the digital and technology to find out what it is really like.

The digital, technology and creative sector is growing rapidly right across Greater Manchester. To keep pace with this revolution, we need to nurture young local talent so that they can take advantage of these incredible career opportunities. We want to ensure you and your students know more about our sector and have meaningful interactions with employer and people who work in digital.

We can work with a limited number of schools and colleges across Greater Manchester until December 2020 on this exciting industry-led programme. Ensure your students and staff benefit from this fully funded, free to access programme.
