Digital skills hub
LBAcademy (LBA) has a mission for social inclusion by bridging the digital skills gap with a Business Growth Hub that provides a Learning & Development portal for a career-path change
LBA held its Executive Launch in September 2017. The theme “How to build your Tech Startup” highlighted the prime objective of the Academy to support UK tech and creative startups. The company was incorporated in January 2019 as a Company Limited by Guarantee to establish our mission of social inclusion by bridging the digital skills gap. We are now a Certified member of Social Enterprise UK
Our objectives are to provide employment workshops and training services, to prepare and support entrepreneurs for careers in the emerging technology industry.
Bridging the digital skills gap
The work would support the UK Govt Digital Skills Plan at a local and regional level. Our aim will be to promote and support activity across three key working streams:
|Ed Tech||Skills & Talent||Apprenticeships|
We will work with specialist partners to provide complementary services, and seek funding to provide services to minority and under-represented groups.
Services provided will focus on Learning & Development (L&D) and include workshops on E-Learning and Webinars. We will be looking for partnerships with Tech enterprises for resource support and access to learning platforms to include free e-Learning platforms i.e. MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) from Educational providers.
Our social purpose and outcomes: Tech entrepreneurship and startup opportunities are not accessible to all communities in London. The social purpose of LBAcademy is to provide support by providing digital upskilling and entrepreneurship support.
The social outcomes would be an increase in employment, a boost in social inclusion and easier access for people from under-represented groups to start a business, find work or succeed in their careers.
…..JOIN US ON OUR MISSION !!
We are focused on the education challenge to ensure we can upskill candidates have the depth of digital skills to contribute and ensure and build a robust workforce for the future.
We have partnered with Tech London Advocates to make a difference connect the tech community directly to schools, teachers and young people to make a massive difference.
