What an amazing initiative to help provide young people with the knowledge and skills to start a rewarding career in the data centre sector!
The CNet Training team is proud to work with industry partners in helping shape and deliver the curriculum for 14-19 year olds to prepare them for a future career within the data centre sector.
Developed alongside leading industry organisations, the Digital Futures Programme allows students to gain the essential knowledge and skills needed to thrive in technical careers within the data centre sector. This sector is currently experiencing unprecedented growth, which is only set to continue, but is facing an on-going skills shortage. This new programme will help to future-proof the industry by inspiring a new generation to join it and enjoy a rewarding career.
The programme curriculum has been carefully designed in close collaboration with industry partners; leading global organisations CNet Training (CNet), Virtus Data Centres, CyrusOne, CBRE, Amazon Web Services, LMG, ARK Data Centres (Crown Hosting Data Centres Limited) and Yondr, who have all committed significant funding and resources to the programme to guarantee students receive a first-class technical education.
The programme also ensures students have a direct line of sight into a rewarding career, while giving the partners a unique opportunity to contribute to educating the next generation of data centre talent. This will make certain that the students gain the much sought-after skills that these businesses need and sets in motion the longer-term steps required to tackle the skills shortage.
It’s great to be working together to encourage young people to join the amazing digital infrastructure industry and help to tackle the skills shortage.
