Get into Tech

Tech training courses for women, run by Sky

About the initiative

Sky's Get into Tech initiative aims to provide a unique and supportive environment in which women with little or no previous technical experience can learn some of the skills necessary to begin a career in technology. Sky recognises the significant lack of gender diversity in the IT industry, and we believe that encouraging capable, talented women into technical roles can bring enormous benefits, both to the women themselves, and also to the teams and companies they end up working with. By introducing more women into this talent pool, we hope to increase diversity in the technology teams at Sky.

Our courses provide beginner level training which aim to give you the skills necessary to apply for entry level jobs. By the end of one of our courses you will be equipped with the technical skills you need to embark on a number of different routes into the industry. We hope you will leave the Academy inspired and empowered, and in a strong position to apply for permanent roles should you wish to.

Our original Get Into Tech course has been successfully running for a number of years. This teaches the fundamentals of software development and provides skills to embark on a successful career in this growing industry.

We’re now also offering a week long training course with our TV Operations department. Learn how we broadcast high-quality content, as well as the types of roles we offer in another key, tech-focused area.
