The Digital Academy

The EJ Digital Academy supports our people, and our customers, to navigate the growing demands and disruption of today’s world.

We recognise that digitalisation involves more than just technology. To drive change, you need the right people with the right skills, knowledge, and insight. Our engineers are prepared to tackle existing and emerging challenges head-on. We prioritise training and development and focus on transferring our engineers’ extensive knowledge and experience into a shared digital environment.

The Digital Academy strengthens our commitment to upskill and reskill our people and to give everyone the opportunity to develop.  With the demand for technological skills to rise by more than 50% in the next decade (World Economic Forum), the digital academy supports further investment in apprenticeships and graduates and the training of existing employees in modern industrial technologies and emerging sustainability skills.

    Our people make the difference. We value them, train them and help them reach their potential.

Digital transformation introduces new technologies, tools, and processes that demand a different skill set. The demand for technology skills is set to rise by more than 50% in the next decade to support automation, digitalisation and net-zero programmes. In an industry already facing a severe skills gap, this added pressure can put a brake on growth as companies struggle to recruit and retain the right staff. As a result, companies must prioritise the upskilling and reskilling of their workforce to keep pace with the rapidly evolving landscape. At the Edwin James Group, we’re tackling this head-on through our Digital Academy, which focuses on the skills needed to support our customers to realise the benefits of digitalisation and help them keep pace with digital disruption
