About the Hub

In collaboration with the London Mayor's Academies Programme, we are pleased to announce the KQ Future Skills Hub with the vision to provide Londoners with the technology skills needed to work with some of Europe’s most exciting companies based in and around the Kings Cross Knowledge Quarter. 

 

The Knowledge Quarter encompasses the some of the largest technology employers in Europe with organisations such as Havas Media, Google, Facebook, Expedia, Benevolent AI.

The Challenge

The Knowledge Quarter is home to large communities of talented individuals that have been excluded from the boom due to a mismatch between their current skills and the opportunities potentially available on the doorstep. The technology sector is poorly represented by minority groups such as BAME, women, disabled etc. due to barriers to both educational opportunities and employment.
