All sessions are taught by qualified teachers and will ultimately enable individuals to access different progression routes, training or support their journey into employment.

We realise the importance of ‘soft skills’ such as teamwork, leadership and problem-solving. For this reason, in addition to learning the fundamentals of technology, we aim to instil these qualities that are so desirable in all professions today. Individuals will be given opportunities to work with others to create their own projects and learn how to create their own CVs.
