Why study with TechUPWomen?

TechUP works to empower the under-served and improve diversity in the tech sector. In line with this mission, the programme has been designed specifically for those who have experienced severe barriers into work and education including being from under-served groups including women, non-binary people, people of colour, the disabled and LGBTQ+.

TechUPWomen programmes are developed closely with employers so not only will you be able to access live online lectures from some of the very best tutors in the UK, the course will also offer workshops, one to one mentoring with industry mentors, networking, a careers fair and weekly industry guest speakers to further enhance your learning journey, as well as support through Catch22 to help find and apply for jobs, apprenticeships and internships at the end of the programme.

WeAreTechWomen are thrilled to be partnering with TechUPWomen this year to support this incredible initiative in 2023.
