Digital and Technology
Harnessing digital principles across every sector and working with the technology industry are vital to the UK economy.
Many of our colleges are specialists in providing training provision within the digital and technology sectors. They offer courses ranging from computer science, cyber security to IT infrastructure.
A number of them have specially built facilities and are working to take advantage of the digital revolution by working to embed digital technologies into existing provision.
The UK tech economy represents 1.56 million of the nation's jobs and provides a wealth of opportunities for learners.
Collab Group works to support the next generation of coders, IT technicians and cyber security specialists to develop their skills and gain routes to employment.
In April 2016, we held a competition inviting students from our member colleges to submit designs for our new Collab Group website.
The creativity and talent evident in their submissions was truly inspiring and it was evident that they had been greatly supported by the college to develop their skills. Collab Group also regularly engages with the key players in the industry including the Tech Partnership and Digital Skills UK.
