Girls Get IT

E-mail Print

IT-Girls-Event-webYear 12 girls attended the IT Girls’ Careers Event in the Waterfront Hall to get an insight into Northern Ireland’s dynamic IT sector.

 This event was organised to address the negative perceptions which exist among female students in the GCSE/A-Level bracket regarding IT as a career path and it gave our students an insight into the local digital sector and the career opportunities available.  The range of careers on offer demonstrated that IT is an exciting and rewarding career for women. There were presentations from local women who have achieved success through IT, an interactive coding workshop, an interactive technology challenge and an employer/educator engagement career zone.
