Activate Learning with Holly Perrett

Activate Learning is excited to announce our collaborative partnership with Milton Keynes College to deliver the new South Central Institute of Technology, working with leading brands such as Microsoft, KPMG, McAfee, Cranfield University, and Evidence Talks.

Activate Learning will be hosting two, state-of-the-art hubs at our Blackbird Leys Technology Campus in Oxford and at our Reading College campus.

Our vision is  to  increase the  representation of black and ethnic minorities, women and other under-represented groups  within the sector and make it more representative of the modern society we live in. We will create an environment for new thinking and enable  you and other  talented and gifted people to  fulfil  their potential in technical training and find careers in the digital and technology sectors.

Employer demand for digital technology skills and knowledge is increasing, and non-digital technology companies are becoming more reliant on digital technology specialists as business requirements evolve. Skills shortages in key areas of the digital economy mean there are many different IT careers available for people with the relevant qualifications and experience.

Key growth areas within the IT and computing industry include social and digital media, data protection, cyber security, games design, website development and cloud/mobile technologies. The south-east of England is home to many global IT companies, so you will be well placed for job opportunities and career prospects.
