Fluency is a learning platform and marketplace that helps young people get into work. We help them unlock their latent digital skills and connect them with businesses who need them.
Fluency is a learning platform that helps young people aged 18 to 25 get into work. Our intuitive learning platform, teaches skills that small businesses, agencies and startups need and allows learners to put their skills to the test with real-world digital challenges. Insight from our platform allows us to match-make young people to employers and freelance opportunities effectively.
As a startup with a social mission, we want to help some of the 1 million unemployed young people in the UK (and the 5.6 million in Europe and 75 million worldwide) into work. We think our young people have a killer app that businesses need - they get digital. Fluency solves youth unemployment and the lack of digital capability in businesses by bringing them together.
