Girls into the Digital World

Skills Development Scotland are working with a range of partners to deliver a programme to inspire girls to consider careers in the digital sector.

In March, 36 girls are participating in a three day programme of visits, talks with role models, and “hands on” activities with employers Edinburgh College and Heriot Watt University.

The girls will:

  • Hear about varied and interesting career opportunities in this growth sector
  • Speak to women working in digital and information technology
  • Be encouraged to explore diverse career pathways including Modern Apprenticeship and degree routes

We are looking for volunteers to support these activities by coming along and speaking to girls in a speed networking session on Tuesday 15th March from 2pm in central Edinburgh.

If you are a woman working in the tech industry and you’d like to help, please contact Nicola Swan
