BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN INDUSTRY AND EDUCATION
Industry 4.0 is the game-changing technology that’s transforming manufacturing, but a shortage of workers with the right digital skills and experience is proving a challenge for employers who want to innovate.
Highly skilled technology postgraduates have the know-how, but their lack of industrial or commercial experience often means they aren’t yet work-ready. Employers, on the other hand, need staff who can hit the ground running.
IN4.0 TALENT bridges the gap between industry and education, creating exciting new opportunities for both employers and students and growing a digital workforce that is fit for the future.
We give students real-world experience by placing them in industry to help deliver live commercial projects.
IN4.0 TALENT Associates support IN4.0 clients with digital technology adoption and training along with tackling R&D innovation challenges. They may also work as Technical Teaching Assistants to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and cyber education in schools and colleges.
Our Associates also support our ACCESS accelerator clients to scope innovation projects and support them in successfully delivering them. Employers get to know the graduate and vice versa without any commitment on either side and at the end of the project they have the opportunity to employ them full-time.
Grow Your Own Talent
In this article, Mo Isap, CEO of IN4.0 Group, discusses why he founded IN4.0 TALENT and how we should be doing more to create further opportunities for technology graduates to retain talent in our region. Essentially, we need to grow our own!
“Having consulted with many of our clients, they all voiced the same concern – they were struggling to find local, highly skilled and work ready graduates to employ.
It seems that due to a lack of opportunities, many of our local, homegrown students move to other regions in search of well paid employment once they’ve graduated”.
