Regrettably, 360 will cease trading on 31 March 2023 and access to the platform closed.
Whilst we have been successful in securing initial capital funding to build phase 1 of the platform, we have not been successful in securing longer term funding. Our model requiring multiple partners to support regionally and nationally has not worked in the current climate. In recent months we have pursued a number of takeover options but no-one seems to have the resource to support this at the present time.
It is a real shame as feedback from schools has been very positive - and over 120 secondary and primary schools are actively using Skill City. We're pleased that on closure, all delivery commitments and liabilities will be met. We do not regret trying to do this for the past 2 years and fully expect someone else to come along in the next 5 years and re-invent the wheel!
Thank you to all our supporters, partners, funders and volunteers - and to the schools who have enthusiastically adopted this innovative programme.
