Are you equipped with the digital and soft skills necessary to thrive in the new economy?
Whether you are a start-up founder, executive, manager, employee or student who is about to begin your journey into the world of work, the skills you need to prosper and thrive in today’s digital world have changed.
New technology is being developed at lightning speeds and yet the growth of the necessary digital and soft skills has not kept pace with the ever-accelerating digital economy. This digital skills gap could cost the UK economy £141 billion in GDP growth according to Accenture.
Great news! The FREE Digital Skills Workshop by Facebook (in partnership with Buzzstart Academy) is coming to Braintree Campus on Tuesday 19th November to help equip you with some of the fundamental digital skills needed in the new economy and you are invited!

From Roger Pittock, our current Secretary
After much soul-searching, and having now had the honour and pleasure of serving 10 years in post, I am not seeking re-election as CSES Secretary. I am looking forward to continuing to support your Society from the Council, but not from the post of Secretary.
I am truly grateful to members for their support over the last 10 years, and I have learned a tremendous amount while in office. The position and experience opened many opportunities during my career.
Please consider putting yourself forward for this role. The time commitment is not that high overall, but comes in bursts. A brief overview follows.
