Just IT are running a free afternoon (4-6pm) event in London for 14-18 year old female students and their teachers / parents / guardians on 17 October 2017, more info below.
Before that though there’s a discussion on BBC Women’s Hour this Friday (29th September) at 11pm in which Lauren Laverne interviews a number of women about their careers in tech, as part of the British Science Festival.
We all know that Ofsted has a key focus on how schools are increasing knowledge for technical careers, as well as ensuring broad careers education for female students.
With this in mind, CCH are supporting a Women In Tech Discovery Event open to all students aged 14-18 and accompanying teachers. Supported by employers, Just IT Apprenticeships, and other partners from the tech sector, the event will provide female students with information and inspiration for a career in technology. Including job options such as;
• Web and Software Developer
• IT Engineer
• Games Designer
• Cyber Security
• Data Analyst
• Digital Marketer
• And many others
All of these careers have skill shortages and represent exciting, creative, supportive and well-paid career opportunities for women.
