Following a successful pilot in 2018, the focus of this partnership is to provide a series of events to allow students to develop their digital skills as well as the soft skills required for working in the sector.

John Davison, Chief Information Officer at First Central, said:

"The technology and creative sectors are fast becoming local industries to watch, and the career opportunities on the island are more exciting and diverse than they've ever been before.
