Secure Your Next Apprentice from the RAW Digital Talent Academy

Excited teen learning and completing a course on his digital marketing, software development and IT apprenticeship

Software Development, Digital Marketing, and IT are all highly specialised fields, and it can be difficult to recruit ready-made talent in these areas. One way to close this skills gap is to create a robust talent pipeline for the future of your business – but how can you get started with this?

The RAW Digital Talent Academy, delivered in partnership with Baltic Apprenticeships, aims to close the region’s digital skills gap one cohort of amazing candidates at a time. Our Talent Academy opens a door to the digital and tech world for the North East’s young people, equipping them with the technical skills, knowledge, and behaviours that businesses across the region need.

If you’re looking to expand your team this summer, there is still time to secure a recruit from our next Digital Marketing, Software Development or IT Talent Academy.

How does the RAW Digital Talent Academy work?

  • Before the Academy, we work with you to understand your company’s values, goals and talent requirements and help you to create your own talent pipeline, directly addressing your digital skills gaps.
  • During the Talent Academy, our cohort of 16-24 year olds get a supercharged package of technical skills and also gain the soft skills you demand. This two-week programme provides a solid foundation to a career in tech, with our training tailored to match the needs of the employers who sign up to secure a candidate from it.
  • Afterwards, you’ll have the opportunity to interview our candidates and enrol them on a Level 3 training programme with Baltic Apprenticeships. Choose from a cohort of work-ready tech talent, with the passion, energy and dedication to develop their skills as part of your team.

Why hire from the RAW Digital Talent Academy?

RAW opens doors for people to do what they love and join one of the most exciting and thriving industries in the world. We encourage businesses to take a leading role in shaping the future of tech and add their voice to the digital skills agenda.

With the RAW Digital and Baltic Apprenticeships partnership, we’ll find your next tech superstar and help them shine. Throughout the Talent Academy, our candidates get the opportunity to prove themselves – improving their skills, exploring their passions, and developing the confidence they’ll need to succeed. An apprentice who has completed the Talent Academy will arrive at your businesses ready to hit the ground running, with the basics already in place. As they progress through their apprenticeship programme, they will also benefit from the ongoing training and support provided by the team at Baltic. 

Mediaworks, a leading digital agency in the North East, are strong advocates of the RAW approach. Jayne Walsh, Head of People and Culture said, “over the last ten years, apprentices have been embedded within our culture at Mediaworks, and we haven’t looked back – the value they can bring to the business is extraordinary. We’ve had a number of real success stories throughout the company as apprentices have progressed their careers – including right through to senior management level. We’ve taken on a brilliant cohort of Digital Marketing apprentices through Baltic Apprenticeships and RAW Digital, and we’re now looking to build on this and create opportunities for IT support and software development apprentices.”
