The Digital Futures Programme: Developing the future talent for the data centre sector.
Dec 17, 2021 Season 1 Episode 63
Andy Davis

In this weeks episode I am joined by Mike Halliday from ALET,  Mike Hook from LMG, and Candace Rose from UTC Heathrow. We discuss the recently established Digital Futures Programme, a data centre training programme specifically focussed on 14-19 year olds.

Firstly we discuss why the Digital Futures Programme was established and how the idea came about. The programme enables young people to gain an insight and education into the data centre sector.

We then cover what the programme entails and discuss a recent challenge day that enabled to students to get a great insight to the data centre sector. 

Finally we discuss the impact the programme will have on young people and why collaboration is so important when you are looking to solve a skills shortage.

The Inside Data Centre Podcast is recorded in partnership with DataX Connect, a specialist data centre recruitment company based in the UK. They operate on a global scale to place passionate individuals at the heart of leading data centre companies.
