What's Happening with Digital?Posted on: 28th Feb 2022
The Digital T Level is going from strength to strength. All of La Retraite 6 Year 13 students on the course have decided that they want to pursue a career in the technology sector and are well on their way to achieving it.
Most of the students have secured themselves a place at university to study computer science, cyber-security and ethical hacking, or games development. Other students have decided to pursue an apprenticeship, so they can gain a practical insight and earn whilst they learn.
Recent statistics show that only 19% of the technical workforce are women and even less for black and Hispanic women at 3%. We are very proud that our T Level students will help increase diversity in the tech industry.
14 out of the top 20 careers in the UK are currently in the technology sector. They are well paid roles and there are many vacancies, so you are almost guaranteed a well-paid job if you chose that route. The future is looking very bright for our Digital T Level and IT students.
One of the factors that sets our students apart from others is the industry placement. We currently have some excellent placements, including in the Civil Service and at web development companies. If you can offer one of our students a 45-day placement, then please get in touch.
