The nature of employment is changing rapidly. In the future, work will be more flexible, more remote, and more people will work for themselves.

Alongside these changes we want to see increased access to real opportunities regardless of background, and a shift in work/life balance: both wellness and sustainability.

The Digital Nomad Project is an educational not-for-profit helping young people across the UK embrace the Future of Work. 
The response has been overwhelming. From July 2021 to December 2021, with an original target of 65, we engaged over 400 young people and enrolled over 1,000 in our free programme. (The programme was so popular that in September we had to switch off our marketing!) We are particularly proud of the way our course has reached under-represented groups across the UK. Our cohorts are 49% people of colour and 72% women.

We have helped these young people learn fundamental freelancing skills, build a professional portfolio, and get hired to work with real companies. 
To support our graduates - and anyone who wants to work for themselves - we are developing a freelancer support platform: Freeer.co.uk. Launching at the end of 2022, this will contribute to the sustainability of The Digital Nomad Project. It will provide the same security, stability and benefits to the self-employed as those in traditional employment.  

We would particularly like to hear from potential partners: e.g. Training Organisations, FE Colleges, Schools, and Universities; Digital Agencies and Tech Communities; and anyone involved with those who want to work for themselves or gain the skills of the Future of Work.
