SCC Academy was extremely privileged to have supported and hosted Young Adult Tech Foundations’ second annual conference at their Tyseley, Birmingham campus on 10 February 2023.

This conference was non-technical based, allowing students without a background in IT insight into opportunities that come within this profession.  As part of apprenticeship week, the academy worked collaboratively on an event that was aimed at students aged 16-18 and currently studying business, highlighting the different roles and directions that the tech industry offers to educate students in this field.

The event consists of keynote speakers from industry-leading experts, hands-on workshops, apprenticeships talks, and mini career fairs, which students found both engaging and informative with many now opening their minds to alternative career options.

Feedback from the event was positive and engaging, with many students reaching out after the event to explore their options further.
