Applications have opened for a new BBC scheme aimed at enabling women looking to move into a career in software engineering to gain the skills they need to do so.
Following what’s been described as a “hugely successful pilot” last year, the scheme aims to help increase the number of women working in the technology sector and has been designed for women who may be returning to work after a break, college leavers and career changers.
Subjects covered include working with websites, applications, cloud-based services and databases as well as introducing candidates to coding and responsive design.
Matthew Postgate, Chief Technology and Product Officer for the BBC said, “We want to ensure that everyone can shape the future of technology so that everyone can benefit.
“Women are underrepresented in the sector overall and the BBC, like many other employers in the industry, want to change this.
“This scheme gives the perfect grounding to women from all walks of life for a new career in technology.”
