WAVE encourages women to play a full part in meeting the demand for ICT and digital skills in Wales, the Project is offering a fully funded training programme.
“Through to 2015 there is a need for 3,100 new entrants a year into IT & Telecoms professional job roles in Wales – the majority of which (42%) are forecast to come from people working in occupations other than IT or Telecoms.” (Technology Insights 2012, e-skills UK)
This course is designed for women currently working in an administrative or business support role, to enable them to move into a role requiring specialist ICT skills and take advantage of the growth of the digital economy.
“The best way to learn in the tech field is to jump in and build things, so you should go ahead and do that as much as possible…. Don’t be afraid to ignore nay-sayers and just go for it.” (Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook)
The Creative iMedia programme will provide you with refreshed and upgraded technical skills and confidence for enhanced pay and career prospects.
This course is now full BUT if you are interested in further training opportunities, contact us today and join our Network for Women in ICT
The aim of the WAVE programme is to understand and ‘interrupt’ the ways in which gender pay inequalities are consistently reproduced through occupational segregation in employment and self employment, through the ways in which ‘women’s work is contracted’ and through the operation of pay systems.
The WAVE programme has now concluded after 3 successful years. There are still loads of fantastic organisations that you can get involved with, take a look!Signposting
