We know that prosperity among the UK’s 1.4 million SME employers will be essential to our economy bouncing back from the impact of Covid-19. Given the right support, they have the potential to deliver as much as £140bn in gross value added (GVA) to the UK economy by 2030 – and to create 3.2m jobs over the same period, according to NatWest’s recent ‘A springboard to recovery’ report.

It helps businesses get the digital skills they need to grow their revenues and be more productive, by matching those who need to upskill with digital experts for free one-to-one mentoring, workshops, and tailored course and resource recommendations.
