Training & Talent Management

Adopting and scaling digital technologies is key to victory in air, land, sea and space – and now cyberspace. And at the heart of the UK defence strategy is a digital backbone that brings the data and computation to where it’s needed.  Given the increasing competition from industry for the best of the best, how do we attract, develop and retain talent within this space?

A clear understanding of what we have and the reskilling, upskilling and focused recruitment to meet our needs is essential. Technology enabled adaptive learning then adds a new paradigm – ensuring efficiency, consistency, better engagement and ultimately, aiding retention.
