Join us for an online lunch and learn introduction to the work of MyPocketSkill and their Digital T-Levels Programme, which connects businesses (or charities) that require additional digital resource with Digital T-Levels Students.
What is a Digital T-Level?
Digital T-Levels are new technical qualifications, equivalent to A-levels, tooling-up young people with digital skills, with 80% of time in the classroom & 20% with employers. As an employer you can tap into these resources – great news if you need someone to augment your team or develop an employment pipeline.
Lunch and Learn session learning outcomes
By attending this session, participants will:
- Gain an understanding of the new T-Levels qualifications
- Learn about MyPocketSkill’s work in the fields of social impact, youth policy, youth entrepreneurship and employability.
- Learn how MyPocketSkill can connect young people with businesses/charities and vice versa
- Show the benefits to employers of working with T-Levels students
About our speaker
The session is delivered by Matthew Harker, Co Founder of MyPocketSkill. Matthew is a dad to two teenage daughters and a specialist in both digital products and youth policy.
MyPocketSkill began with a question. How do we connect young people with opportunities beyond typical employment routes? How do we empower young people to exercise the full range of their skills and grow their financial capability in the process? MyPocketSkill connect talented young people between the ages of 13-22 with households and businesses who need their help. We enable them to share their skills and earn money through tutoring, music coaching, photography, social media management and more. Founded by sector specialists. They provide expert advice to influential organisations which set youth policy to improve financial capability. Our mission is to help create a financially responsible Gen Z, increasingly prepared for the uncertain world ahead of them.
