U.K. tech giant BSkyB has launched a digital citizenship initiative, pledging to offer students in a number of industries access to digital tools and skills that can help them get a good job.
The company said in a blog post on Monday that it aims to create a digital workforce that has a “digital footprint” that can enable them to succeed in the tech industry.
It is the latest in a string of tech-based initiatives BSkyb has launched over the last year.
In March, it announced that it was planning to hire 200 new employees, in an effort to create “digital teams” that could help solve issues such as supply chain management and customer service.
Earlier this year, it launched a new digital citizenship program that will help young people learn the skills they need to succeed online, and give them access to tools to help them navigate the web.
BSkyB said that it has also launched a series of online learning courses aimed at making the digital world more accessible for people who want to be digitally literate.
“BSkyb’s Digital Citizenship Initiative will enable students in all sectors of the economy to learn skills that are relevant to their digital skillset, enabling them to take advantage of the digital economy and its many opportunities,” the company said.
