“"Technology Connected helped me find the right place and took the pressure off my shoulders. I had a quick chat with my mentor about what I was looking for, and what my skills are – and they found me a match." ”
We help bring businesses and the best new tech talent from universities and colleges across Wales together, through fast-paced and interactive networking events, work experience placements and internships.
We’re making sure Wales’ growing digital economy has the necessary talent in place to continue to meet the challenges and opportunities the future brings, helping push the skills agenda to both UK and Welsh Government.
We work with schools, colleges universities and businesses to demonstrate the many rewarding career paths for young people in technology.
