As part of the Institute of Coding, a national programme to tackle the skills gap between industry and university graduates, the University of Sunderland are partnering with Digital Union, to provide a series of free top up technical courses and Digital Bootcamps starting in Februar 2020, to increase the employment skills of students and graduates.

Technical courses
The University of Sunderland will look to provide some relevant ‘brush up’ computer science courses aimed at enhancing your technical skills and ensuring they are relevant to the needs of industry

Digital Bootcamps
Digital Union’s Bootcamp, the only one like it in the UK, will offer an extensive insight into the digital sector, valuable agency & project experience, alongside essential soft skills training.

The programme has been designed in consultation with, and will be delivered by, the best digital professionals from the region to give you the skills & experience that will make you stand out from the crowd.

It’s for those graduates who need a solid understanding of what’s going on in the digital world and that want to adopt best practice ways of working. Once you have completed the courses and Bootcamps, you will have industry standard skills, practised in working collaboratively under an agile framework and using industry standard tools to manage projects & clients.
