We work with companies across Wales including DVLA, Go Compare, Admiral, Institute of Coding and smaller businesses to deliver our BSc in Applied Software Engineering. This is a Welsh Government fully-funded Degree Apprenticeship programme that supports companies and individuals to upskill the workforce whilst in employment, and ensure staff skills are current and relevant.

Degree Apprenticeships


We work closely with lots of big and small organisations, and some even support us via our Steering Group. These currently include TATA Steel, Theatr na nÓg, First UK and the Yellowsands Foundation.

We would love to work with you! Get in touch if you would like to see how we can work together.

We are always looking to support career pathways for young people and we want to bridge the gap between subject and career.

In particular, we are keen to support young women into STEM careers by presenting role models that have already moved forward their career in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths.

Our Role Models encourage our younger audiences to consider a career in STEM by providing an insight into their own workplaces.


Women's Network

The aim of our WiST network is to establish connections between women working within the sector (technology in particular) with regular events to learn from each other’s experience in the workplace and to support and inspire those on an early career path.

We encourage members to get involved with the project and we offer opportunities for individuals, companies, and other organisations to engage with young people by developing a strong role-model network to support the work we do in schools.
