Description

What’s the Pledge?

We’re yourfeed. We’ve pledged to connect 2 million young people to purposeful opportunities by 2020 and we’re kicking off our 90-day tour with YOU! Love using new apps, social networks and cool hardware? Strong feelings in the Android vs iPhone debate? Well congrats, you're a techy! Don't miss our Tech Rally sharing insight into the different routes within the tech industry because you don't have to be a coder to work in tech.


Why Should I Attend?

*There are now 1.64 million digital tech jobs in the UK, and the digital sector is creating jobs 2X faster than the non-digital sector. No one wants to get left behind in the digital revolution but not everybody wants to be a coder. *NEWS ALERT* you don’t have to be a coder to get into the tech industry! Maybe you’ve heard of Facebook? Well, we’ve teamed up for an unforgettable Tech Rally held at their head office in London. It’s time to get educated and get excited about your future, as we rally together to provide you insight into the variety of opportunities available in the new digital age. Hold tight, tech is coming!

We’re hosting a Tech Rally with all the standard Pep Rally essentials including mascots, signs, foam hands, pom poms and brass instruments to excite you about all the different pathways you can take in the tech industry. We promise to hold off the lame chants! You’ll get pumped by listening to some incredible speakers, an audience open mic, genuine networking and be part of the soon to be the biggest viral campaign to educate the globe!

It's a real chance to learn the different routes and roles within the tech industry so you have all the info you need to start your exciting new digital career.
