Microsoft turns jobs centres into tech hubs to improve youngsters IT skills | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it
Microsoft has launched a new skills programme in the UK to improve young people's IT skills and digital literacy.


The Get On programme includes a number of different initiatives to help young people "get inspired, get skilled and get a job", said Hugh Milward, Microsoft head of corporate affairs, in an interview with V3.


The programme is set to help 300,000 16 to 24 year olds take steps toward work and the start of a career over the next three years, through a combination of education and training, apprenticeships and work experience.
