Supported by tech company CGI and delivered in partnership with Glasgow Clyde College, GCL offers a pathway of flexible digital skills courses. Applications are open for fully-funded places on intermediate and top level courses in web design, software development and cyber security (SCQF levels 5-7).
Digital skills are essential skills for jobs today – 93% of European workplaces use computers. And the Scottish digital industry is booming! At £36,900, average salaries in digital tech are 26% higher than the national average, and the tech sector is one of the fastest growing in Scotland. It needs 13,000 new people to fill vacancies each year. So, whether it’s games development or coding, healthcare or tourism, there’s a digital career for everyone!
Working in partnership with Glasgow City Council, GCL is welcoming applications from those who meet the criteria for the Scottish Government’s Young Person’s Guarantee fund. Applicants should be aged 16-24, live in Glasgow, have the right to work in the UK, and be facing barriers to work.
Courses are part-time and 6-12 weeks long. Clyde College deliver a blend of live lectures, practical discussion sessions, individual and group projects. All live, tutor-led sessions are recorded so learners can fit their studies around other commitments.
Learners will receive a student card to access Clyde College’s facilities, have access to laptops, software and connectivity, and hear from industry experts on careers available in the Digital Technologies sector.
