The Leeds City Region is facing a significant digital skills gap with employers struggling to recruit to positions in software development software testing business analysis and project management. This presentation will outline one initiative taken by Leeds Trinity University to utilise employer and practitioner expertise in a multi-layered approach to co-designing the curriculum linked to digital skills and to engage students across a range of programmes in the development of skills relevant to the local labour market. It will also consider the challenges of contextualisation and engagement arising out of this initiative.
