Our participants are:

The programme covers the different type of tech roles available in the industry, the different tech jargon terms, how to tailor a cover letter and CV to these specific positions and we even do group projects. Alongside our facilitators we do have guest speakers from Tech Apprenticeships providers, and Microsoft staff also speak to the group about the tech industry.
