Task

UpSkill Digital were tasked with developing virtual instructor-led training courses that supported 16-24 year olds prepare for a role in todays digital workplaces. Two pieces were created and delivered by UpSkill focusing on 'Preparing for a Career in Today's Digital Workplace and 'Brining Your Ideas to Life'. Content was delivered via a virtual platform utilising UpSkill's expert coaches who presented and moderated each webinar. We ran 2 webinars per week over an 18 week period

Solution

We adapted original face to face session content to classroom style content for two 45 minute webinars to fit the brief from BT during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We sourced two coaches from our global network to present and moderate on one webinar per topic per week over a period of 18 weeks. The sessions reviewed six key themes needed for the modern workplace and touched upon practical websites such as Slack and Google Suite that can help an individual get set up in the modern workplace. Throughout the sessions, our lead coach asked questions to the participants which actively encouraged participation through the chat box, with our moderator on hand to respond and ask thought proviking questions.

Result

We have delivered over 30 virtual sessions to over 400 people, showcasing digital capabilities which help the jobseeker market with key take aways and tools to help them find a job in todays digital workplace.
Throughout the sessions, there has been high engagement from participants who have fully utlized the opportunity to ask questions and engage with our trainers.
