What do we do?

TechUP specialises in running blended-learning programmes, which train individuals from underserved groups into entry-level tech roles.

Developed in collaboration with industry, TechUP programmes include a mix of training in relevant tech skills, one-to-one mentoring, empowerment, and confidence building.

Our flexible approach ensures that anyone can benefit, regardless of their learning style and other commitments.

TechUP directly links those who have the potential to succeed with access to the tech industry – it’s about overcoming the barriers to engagement and access.

TechUP plays a brilliant role in that and the results speak for themselves
