Digital skills: Intermediate

Digital Edge

Are you tech savvy and would love to work in the digital tech world? Maybe you have a computer related qualification but don't know how to take the first step into a career. You could be someone who had worked in non-tech sectors previously but now want to make  that move into the digital world, or maybe you enjoy coding and would now love to build a career in this constantly developing sector. 

About the Digital Edge Programme:

Projects and tasks both individual and team based to develop you skills and knowledge. Continued support with help to tailor your CV to tech, cover letters and interview prep specific to digital roles.
