We unlock potential

In light of our mission to bridge the gap between education and employment, we have designed a skills programme to enable young people to become the best version of themselves that they can be, by unlocking their potential and tapping into their innate skills which are so sought after by employers.

Our innovative and fresh approach to employability and skills training paired with industry project opportunities with employers has enabled hundreds of young people to not only unlock their potential, but also to gain valuable work experience by providing tangible business improvements for employers.

How do we do this?

We work with education providers and community organisations to deliver the DI skills programme which is designed to enhance employability skills in young people

We facilitate collaboration between young people in the region and employers of all sizes through live work projects to produce tangible business improvements

Our combination of hands-on learning and specialised training enables young people to unlock their potential whilst accessing meaningful employment opportunities
