Event description

Description

Sunderland Software City would like to support young people into the software sector. SSC fully understand the requirements of the sector and the employment opportunities within it. We have the knowledge and facilities to deliver a short training programme to take people from any educational or employment background and help them onto a pathway into a career in the software sector.

The School engagement programme will aim to achieve five core outcomes:

1. Help them understand the software industry and employment within it

2. Give them knowledge and practice to try technical and non-technical disciplines

3. Support their preferred discipline through intensive and focused training

4. Develop their employment skills with specific reference to entering the software sector

5. Provide them guidance and introductions to progression routes into the industry.


Delivery

The programme will take place in the purpose built Software Centre, Tavistock Place, Sunderland, SR1 1PB which is in the centre of Sunderland and has direct transport links within Sunderland from surrounding areas , this will give learners access to a professional working environment and also give them the opportunity to network with software businesses within the building.

Students will be required to attend on three consecutive days. Students will be required to attend from 9.30am – 3.00pm each day.

Over the three days, students will get the opportunity to meet with businesses and training providers from the software sector. The programme exposes learners to a range of tech companies, job roles, skills requirements and career routes as well as taking them through basic technical skills development that then could progress learners onto further training, education or entry-level jobs within the industry.


Sign Up

This programme is specifically aimed at learners who have a genuine interest in the tech sector and may be considering furthering their education or finding employment in this sector. The programme is therefore most appropriate for students in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13.
