There are employees across the region looking to grow their workforce with skilled people, while on the other hand there are graduates, people who are under-employed or looking for a career change, who are looking for work but may be finding it difficult to gain experience.
The Academy aims to solve this by providing opportunities including degree apprenticeships, and work placements.
The Academy is currently closed for applications. There will be further opportunities in 2024.
The placements will be with companies at M-SParc and the surrounding ecosystem, and allow the Academy members to gain valuable work experience and develop their skills.
They may then find employment with the company they are placed with, or will be in a much better position to find employment following their time at the Academy.

Tom used to work at the KFC in his hometown of Colwyn Bay before it mysteriously burned down. He then spent several years “on the lam” in East Germany, where he worked as an animator in Berlin. When the wall fell, Tom came home.
He enjoys climbing and hates ice-skating.
