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

Promote your tech opportunities at Tech Partnership Student Events


Meet bright, ambitious tech students at the Tech Partnership Student Events. Ideal for company's recruiting for technology and business graduates and placement students, these events raise your company's profile, you can share your latest and upcoming job roles and placements, and introduce a new generation to your company through student competitions, skills sessions, key note talks and more.

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, IT Management for Business (ITMB) and Software Development for Business (SDfB), with employers and academics.

These two unique degrees are designed to offer students key knowledge of technology, how they can apply these skills to business whilst also developing key interpersonal skills that are desired by graduate recruiters.
