We bring the world of work to life by providing opportunities for young people to understand digital career pathways and the skills required to build successful working lives
The Sunderland Digital Careers programme challenges pre-conceived ideas, raises aspirations and encourages pupils to think about their future through meaningful experiences with employers. It also raises industry awareness and encourages pupils to consider a broader and more ambitious range of future education and career options. With just a small amount of industry engagement, students feel more confident, informed and inspired about their future.
The programme provides a range of employer engagement opportunities for young people including workplace site visits, industry workshops, career expos, guest talks, competitions, and more.
This programme is funded by Sunderland City Council, and supported by the following partners: Sunderland College, Sunderland University, Together for Children and Sunderland Software City.
