Join the women in tech revolution
Did you know only 17% of the tech workforce is women? Or that out of the top 16 tech companies in the FTSE 100, there’s only one ethnic minority woman on the board?
It’s time to tackle the shortage of women in tech, especially those from under-represented groups. It’s time to create the female tech leaders of tomorrow.
TechUP, a partnership between Durham, York, Edge Hill and Nottingham universities, is giving 100 women the opportunity to retrain for a tech career with an interview for an internship, apprenticeship or job role at the end of the programme.
The six-month programme is open to women with a degree in any subject across the North and Midlands.
TechUp is mainly completed online, allowing you to fit it around your current commitments. Modules include data science, coding, cyber security project management, public speaking, clear communication and working as a team.
A mentor who works in the sector will provide advice and guidance to you throughout the course. There are also four residential weekends where you can network with peers and listen to industry-led talks.
