There is a big skills gap in entry-level tech roles. GIT:NK fills a need both for the local unemployed and national employers. Currently, 22% of people in RBKC are in jobs paying below the London Living Wage (Trust for London 2017) with unemployment in North Kensington at double the national average (IMD 2011). There is a definite need to build skills which lead to employment.
GIT:NK will solve this problem by: a) offering local people in a deprived area a fantastic opportunity to gain skills to work in Tech. b) being a collaboration between local community partners and businesses. c) involving people who are expert in providing Tech training. d) providing opportunities for wider involvement from businesses.
