The Girls in Hi-Tech programme aims to address the lack of woman entering high technology business sectors. It gives girls the opportunity to experience the types of roles that are available in the Hi-Tech sector and to hear first-hand from female business ambassadors about their careers.
The programme is delivered over a school term, through a series of hands-on, work-related challenges delivered by three different high technology businesses. Girls in Hi-Tech brings together businesses and schools to show how interesting, stimulating and attractive a career in the Hi-Tech sector can be.
Girls in Hi-Tech raises self-confidence and awareness of career opportunities in technology and engineering as well as significantly raising students’ aspirations.
“It taught me that engineering is also for women, and has inspired me into looking at different career paths” Student
