/Want to CTRL Your Future?

We’ve teamed up with some of the digital industry’s trailblazers to showcase inspiring examples of people shifting the dial on diversity in this field. Our trailblazers are a group of creators and change-makers who are making digital inclusive for all and restarting the system along the way.

Over the next few months, we’ll be rolling out events, panel talks, workshops and short films – showing the real, accessible opportunities in digital and calling for more people like you to get involved in digital via higher education.

Once you have made the decision to pursue digital, we can help you. We offer a flexible and exciting range of digital skills courses that will give you the skills you need for today’s jobs.
