Focus Group

We understand that the needs of Industry and Education (Primary and Secondary Teachers) may be different and have therefore arranged separate focus groups to make sure we provide what is needed to each sector.

Our focus groups will discuss what digital skills are needed so that we can offer these to employed people in Durham in the future.

Interested in joining a focus group, contact a member of the team on the details below to find out more.
