How do I sponsor a Next Gen Delegate?
EDII’s mission to open doors to under-represented talent is achieved by offering sponsored programme places to students and young people from areas of inequality and low social-mobility.
Our Next Gen Delegates join the programme for the entire cohort year, and work shoulder-to-shoulder with Delegates already established on the industry career ladder. We work closely with the Delegates, their originating organisation (for example, the STEMettes or ELBA) and the sponsoring organisation to support the Delegates through their education journey and potential recruitment opportunities.
To discuss sponsoring a Pipeline Delegate, please contact the EDII team via firstname.lastname@example.org
What specific skills and experience do I need?
Delegates do not need technical, innovation, creative or digital skills to join the programme. An appetite for learning, commitment to team participation and a desire to bring fresh ideas to the industry are the main criteria.
What role does the business sponsor play?
The Delegates’ business sponsors are extremely important. Not only will the business sponsor support Delegate attendance at the facilitated sessions, we also consider them an ‘extended Delegate’, as they help their nominee to build on, consolidate and promote the knowledge they’ve learned back within their own organisations.
Does the programme qualify for CPD?
Digital Minds is eligible for CPD hours and is also currently undergoing a formal CPD accreditation process via the CII.
Will I be able to connect and work with delegates from other organisations?
Absolutely! All delegates work in cross-organisation teams and build strong connections with their peers from different roles and companies. Networking and working alongside other organisations in business is one of the best resources for career development and professional success.
We want to give delegates the opportunity to learn from the best in the business. Read on to learn more about just some of the specialists you could collaborate with.
Our syllabus has been carefully crafted to deliver the unique combination of agile innovation, business-creative, and leadership skills needed to address today’s challenges.
We offer subject matter expertise and market insights to all our new programme delegates.
