The #borndigital advantage 'watch these great young people' - thanks to @gazelleFE and @digitalyouthac

At a recent conference in Liverpool, the Global Entrepreneur congress, I was very privileged to present a workshop on the 'advantage our Born Digital Generation' to the Business Community within the UK. 200 amazing, bright, motivated and lively College Students took part thanks to the Gazelle Group , a consortium of Colleges and Principles, led by the amazing Fintan Donohue, Principle of North Hertfordshire College http://www.nhc.ac.uk/

In my role as Founder and Acting CEO for Digital Youth Academy I am excited by the pending launch of the Social Digital Apprentice. A dream I had in March 2011 ( see my first Blog on this HERE ) which will become a reality next month when we have our first cohort of learners through 3 Pilot Partners, Middlesbrough College, Guildford College and Key Training. The role out across the UK will happen soon after.

I am so impressed by the Principles of the Colleges I have been fortunate to meet, their passion for the Young people and the teams they have assembled to work on new ideas and initiatives is quite mind-blowing. It takes time to make changes but I can assure you the desire and competence of those I have met give me faith that we will see a marked change in the education of our Young People in the coming years toward an entrepreneurial and enterprising spirit.

On Wednesday night I presented at the Guildford College Apprenticeship Evening to potential employers and we were blown away by the desire and pledges to hire a Social Digital Apprentice, some of who pledged to hire two or more.

Take a look at this video of these great people, they could be working for you!
