The Digital Greenhouse is extremely pleased to be working with First Central Group to deliver Guernsey's Digital Innovators programme. The programme, now in its second year, is designed to deliver a range of exciting opportunities for young people to engage with digital technologies. Working with the expert team from First Central, students are able to get involved in hackathons, workshops and events to develop their skills through real hands-on learning. 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:
Reaching over 140 young people in the first year of operation, the Digital Innovators programme continues to have a positive impact on young people's skills, aspirations and enthusiasm for working in the technology sector. Find out about upcoming events for under 21s through the links below.
