The computer and digital sector is a rapidly expanding part of our global economy. It offers a range of careers using experts from the humanities, art and design and languages as well as the more obvious science and technology subjects. Companies in this area are increasingly thinking about sustainability, equity, neurodiversity and accessibility and this gives young people a huge opportunity to get involved with changing things for the better. In this area you will learn about digital product development and the mindset to always be improving a product, service or business. You will be supported by Octopus Farm and Dopplle.
