UpScale Re-Brand Ready for New Academic Year!
Birkbeck Careers’ UpScale Programme has had an incredibly successful year, bringing a range of tech employers to campus and engaging an exceptional number of students with our tech focussed workshops, panel events, networking sessions and more.
Over 2,500 students have registered with the programme to date, developing a range of digital skills along the way and we’re excited for our plans in the coming academic year. As a result, we’ll be re-launching ready for the start of the year under the new title, UpSkill: Tech.
Upskilling is more than simply learning a new skill; our wider Career’s & Employability service is dedicated to helping make transitions possible, be it a career move from one industry to another or a step up in the same field, we’re focussed on upskilling all students to reach their goals.
The purpose of UpSkill: Tech continues to focus on enhancing students’ career prospects through greater digital skills and opening up doors they may not have previously considered. The new title tweak captures this motivation while remaining close to our original brand.
The past year has seen everything from tech entrepreneurs and SME’s to large corporations such as Asos and the BBC come to campus and deliver a calendar of exciting events and we’ll be continuing to partner with even more organisations over the next 12 months.
Moving forward, UpSkill will become the staple part of all future Careers & Employability related initiatives and we’re looking forward to taking you on the journey, whatever your career ambitions, with us.
Keep updated with the conversation via Twitter @BirkbeckCareers as we approach our official launch of the new UpSkill: Tech Programme ahead of the 2017/18 academic year.
