The Tech Partnership

We were really excited to sponsor the North Event. At Sky, we’re always looking for passionate, engaged and interested young people and this was a great opportunity for us to meet lots of students in one go, talk to them, and give them the opportunity to ask us questions too.

Student-Employer Events

Meet bright, ambitious tech students at the Tech Partnership Degrees Events

The Tech Partnership runs two major events a year - one in the north and one in the south of the UK - bringing together students of its Tech Partnership-accredited degrees, with employers and academics. These unique degrees are designed by employers to provide students with the most relevant academic learning, alongside the technical, business and interpersonal skills that  place them in high demand in the tech sector. 

There are now opportunities available for employers to sponsor these events, and to book recruitment fair spaces. Employers can also take part in other ways such as becoming a keynote speaker, volunteering as a competition judge, etc. See below for more details on the events and for more information on these opportunities. 

NB - Registration for employers to just come along as attendees will be available soon.
