We believe that we are uniquely well positioned, with our proven track record of convening the sector in the north, to bring together a nuanced group of stakeholders that can positively impact the skills agenda.

STRATEGIC PARTNER

Luminate Education Group


Luminate Education Group is a collective of education providers based in Yorkshire and is aiming to enhance the current and future skills priorities within Finance and Professional Services.

FinTech North was delighted to announce Luminate as our inaugural Strategic Skills Partner. As a leading consortium of colleges in West Yorkshire, we’re looking forward to working closely with the team at Luminate to positively impact the skills agenda.

By working together as our inaugural Strategic Skills Partner, Luminate Group will be able to increase skill levels, involve more FPS workers in training programmes, improve employment levels and attract and retain workers into the sector.

As part of this partnership, FinTech North will also support the launch of the West Yorkshire Finance and Professionals Skills report; delivered alongside Whitecap Consulting.

Luminate will continue to play an integral role to all future Skills focussed activities this year, including our upcoming Leeds Conference where they will play a leading role as part of a Skills-themed panel discussion.

The Digital Innovation – FinTech project, funded by the UK Government’s Local Skills Improvement Funding (LSIF), seeks to address current and future skill priorities in the region and is a direct response to the recommendations of the Yorkshire and Humber Financial and Professional Services Skills Commission.
