in4.0 ED

empowering the technology disruptors of the future

IN4.0 Ed is a Community Interest Company, with aspirations emanating from a desire to creatively disrupt the developing skills agenda, beyond the confines of STEM classification, ensuring it keeps a pace with digital and technological innovations.

Our vision is to empower young people to be leaders within their local area and within local industries by exploiting opportunities within the increasing digital and technological disruption of local economies.

We also focus on the ability to demonstrate leadership within developments relating to the changing skills requirements of industry and how educational institutions best serve these. This, in turn, will “future proof” those industries from skills shortages by addressing current skills requirements in established industries as well as supporting emerging sectors to meet the needs of tomorrow!

DEVA Network

The 21st century is ushering in an epoch of unprecedented digital and technological innovation. Set against this backdrop, the way young people will work and the skills they will need to thrive in their careers are rapidly evolving.

DEVA will address this challenge by delivering an innovative, digital careers, enterprise, education programmes and widening participation experience to young people, equipping them with the confidence, motivation, knowledge and skills to reach their true potential. This will enable and empower our young people to use digital technology to positively challenge their circumstances and take control of their destiny.

A central feature will be the co-creation of a video CV by each student aided by influential DEVAs (Digital Entrepreneurs, Vloggers and Ambassadors) who will have been brigaded into a unique and dynamic, social media directed mentor network. This experience will facilitate pathways culminating in creating employable people integral to the talent pipeline of the 21st century workforce within the creative and digital sectors
