Centres Of Digital Excellence (CODEs)
Developing digital skills for the Sussex region
About the project
Looking to expand your digital skills? Sign up below for a FREE course in cyber security (Northbrook College) or Virtual Reality (Brighton MET).
The Sussex Local Skills Improvement Plan identified a shortage of digital skills in the region, with employers highlighting this as critical to their businesses’ successful futures. As a response to this, Chichester College Group has set up Centres of Digital Excellence (CODEs) across five of its colleges: Brighton MET, Brinsbury, Chichester, Crawley and Northbrook College.
