Digital Her: Inspiring girls to strive, supporting women to thrive 

Software developer continues to be the most in demand job role in tech. However, the dial on diversity of our tech teams still isn’t shifting fast enough or far enough. 

Lead the change. Join the Mission. 

Our dedicated Digital Her Apprenticeship Programme for Software Development will support and nurture more women into hard to recruit software development technical roles, while providing a supportive environment for their growth and success.

Despite the growing demand for diverse talent in the tech sector, women remain underrepresented in technical roles. 

The Digital Her Apprenticeship programme will launch this summer, offering comprehensive training in software development over 18 months alongside mentoring, coaching and support designed specifically to develop the skills and professional confidence women need early in their careers to be successful and progress rapidly in their career as experts in their field.
