What do people think of Digital Innovators?

Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of working with many talented and inspiring young people as well as many businesses who are dedicated to contributing to the development of young people in the region.

We’d like to share with you some of the incredible feedback we’ve had from previous Digital Innovators students and previous employers so you can hear first hand the impact our programmes can have.

What do our students think?

“Digital Innovators helped me gain confidence and discover my strengths. Without the DI Skills Programme, I would never have found Vanti.”

– Sharanjeet, previous student on the DI Skills Programme who secured a full-time position with Vanti.

“If I was recommending this programme to someone, I would tell them to 100% do it. I have developed my skills so much and already learnt a lot in the 18 months that I’ve been taking part.”

– Chloe, current student on the DI Skills Programme

What do employers think?

“We’re getting a brilliant blend of problem-insights and solutions, combined with audience awareness and technical solutions, and they are so positive – they listen, respond, adapt, challenge .…fantastic!”

– Tara Verrell, Birmingham City Council
