Scale-Up Programmes

Digital Business Academy

A national programme of online learning that gives people the commercial know-how to start, run or join a digital business. Course content is provided by leading universities and grassroots digital skills schools.

There were approximately 20,000 registrations within the first year of the programme’s launch and 1,000 course completions. Students who complete the programme applied for rewards such as free training days at Decoded, work placements in start-ups, or start-up loans for the students who are ready to start their own digital businesses.

This programme is associated with Recommendation 6 of the Scale-Up Report.
