Sunderland Software City is running a fully funded digital training programme for residents in North Tyneside.
In partnership with Newcastle College, the Go Reboot Plus training programme takes place over a period of 4-weeks, with different cohorts happening throughout the year. A minimum attendance of 2 days per week is required.
Programme participants can choose their sessions based on their skills levels and goals. Session options include:
- Introductory courses with Newcastle College in a digital area of your choice. Examples include an introduction to coding, web development, or networking.
- Employability workshops and CV building sessions.
- Employer talks, featuring organisations such as Accenture and the National Careers Service.
- Speed-dating sessions with local employers.
Go Reboot Plus is suitable for unemployed adults living in North Tyneside (including Wallsend), who have an interest in developing their digital skills.
The training programme caters for individuals from a variety of levels, but common across all levels is a current lack of advanced digital skills such as coding, web development, or networking.
The programme can benefit both individuals who have found themselves in long-term unemployment and who are looking for more support with transitioning into a routine and developing their confidence – to individuals who have recently been made redundant and who are looking for a digital skills boost.
The first cohort starts in November, with others starting at later dates.
