Your route into a new career starts here

We’ll train you with the skills and knowledge you need to get into a tech company. Adapting your existing skills to a new industry is not difficult. Employers value and need things like teamwork, organisation and communication. Customer service skills and attention to detail. We’ll give you training in the digital tools and skills that make your existing and transferable skills shine.

People often think the only way to work in the tech industry is to be a coder, designer or developer. This is not true. There is a huge demand for people, like you, with transferable skills to make sure that digital projects stay on track and on time.  You’ll lead on communications to keep teams, clients and stakeholders happy.

In this course we will demonstrate the core skills that will help you take your first steps into the tech industry, starting with discovering what non-tech job roles you can apply for. The tech world is booming - and it’s not just coders and data engineers that drive this forward. There are many other roles in tech companies - operations, support, project management, account management - all with good paths for ongoing progression and opportunities to develop your skills and career.
