Support the Women in Tech campaign

The University of Birmingham Boot Camp team and WISE are currently preparing a bid to the West Midlands Combined Authority Digital Skills Training Fund to provide a ‘Women in Tech’ scholarship scheme to contribute to fees for the boot camp programme, encouraging women into tech careers and helping to address the gender employment and wage gap in the West Midlands.
