Since launching in October 2019, BT’s Skills for Tomorrow programme has delivered practical support to thousands of SMEs across the UK. Due to the spread of the coronavirus and the way this has transformed our working environment, having the skills to do business online is more important than ever.
According to Small Business Britain, 75% of businesses have reported an internal skills gap and as large numbers of people are confined to their homes, many businesses will need ongoing support to build their digital skills as they work from home for the first time.
At a time when many small businesses are navigating new working processes, we’re working with partners such as Google Digital Garage, Small Business Britain, Crowdfunder and many more to provide information, advice and help for people to do business online and to build their digital skills . We're supporting small businesses to adapt their business model and move online, and want as many people as possible to have access to these training resources.
