Software Development

As one of the fastest growing industries, particularly in the North East, the tech sector is constantly recruiting new designers and developers. Your mentor Phil will ensure you’re fluent in the languages of the web, from HTML and CSS through to JavaScript and Python. Once you’ve mastered that, the shift will be over to app development then onto your final project.
Networks are imperative within this industry, as competition is huge, so make the most of company visits, guest speakers and panellists by making yourself known. We’d love to see more women in tech too, so let’s address this gender imbalance.
