We’re living longer, working smarter and feeling more interconnected than ever before. With the world at our fingertips, how do we sustain lifelong learning, and how will the future of education and work evolve as a result?

Capita Scaling Partner, the start-up development unit of UK business services leader Capita plc, in association with the TechMarketView Innovation Partner Programme, is looking for partners to revolutionise the Future of Workplace Learning, drawing on the capability of Capita to supercharge businesses that are offering something special in this field.  

Your business should be focused on transforming the way companies, organisations, employees and citizens engage with learning, be it at work, at home or on the move. We are looking for companies with the potential to disrupt established ways of working to help deliver better outcomes, for example by providing:

  • Improved visibility of skills gaps or learning outcomes;
  • Access to enhanced methods and sources of learning;
  • More flexibility for employees to upskill themselves and transfer their skills to other roles

Unparalleled industry visibility in TechMarketView research, including UKHotViews, arguably the most influential daily commentary on the UK tech scene.
