The Tech Partnership works with the Scottish Government, Skills Development Scotland and Highlands and Islands Enterprise among others, to deliver a range of education programmes designed to inspire new tech talent for a rapidly growing Scottish tech sector.  We also work to ensure future tech stars get the quality of training they need for Scotland to compete in the global digital economy.

 

Our work in Scotland

Tech Industry Gold Degrees
Our  degree programmes are taught at leading universities across Scotland and the rest of the UK. They are designed in collaboration with top employers meaning they provide students with the technical, business and and interpersonal skills the sector is looking for.  Students can choose from two undergraduate courses: IT Management for Business BSc (ITMB) and Software Development for Business BSc.

Tech Future Girls
Girls aged 9-14 can experience the fun side of the digital world through creative projects based on real-life challenges from industry. This series of 30-60 minute afterschool or lunchtime clubs delivers activities themed around music, sport, charity work and dance. Through these activities, girls learn skills vital to the future digital economy such as coding, cyber security, data management and video editing alongside team work and communication.

Frameworks for Scottish training providers
We develop frameworks for Information and Communication Technologies and Information Technology professionals. We also provide information on delivering Modern apprenticeships in IT.  

NOS & MA development
We work with employers in Scotland who contribute to the development and revision of National Occupational Standards, the standards of performance individuals must achieve when carrying out functions in the workplace.
