Sussex Skills Solutions – here to help your business navigate the new working environment

As we emerge from lockdown, it is more important than ever to support staff so they can get to grips with how the workplace will run.

Sussex Skills Solutions, the college's apprenticeship and training specialist shines the spotlight on the importance of developing Digital Skills.

Over the last few weeks and months, companies welcomed back staff to the workplace. Some may have returned from furlough, some might still be working from home, others might be back in the office, or there could be a mix of the two. Either way, there are bound to be changes to the working environment.

Sussex Skills Solutions can help staff make this transition seamlessly by enabling them to level up or develop new digital skills - vital in today’s new workplace.

Latest figures predict that within the next 20 years, 90% of all jobs will need some form of digital knowledge. In addition, data protection compliance is an essential legal requirement for all organisations.

In today’s climate, it is more important than ever that everyone who works with personal data understands and acts in compliance.
