Women Returners Programmes go LIVE

On Tuesday May 5th, Technology Ireland Software Skillnet launched Women ReBOOT LIVE! - the first virtual Women ReBOOT programme. Women ReBOOT is one of our flagship programs with amazing success stories. 

 

This is the fourth year of the programme which supports women to return to their career in the technology sector. Technology Ireland Software Skillnet has now supported more than 300 women as they look to re-join the tech sector and step back into highly-skilled roles in over 60 companies. 

 

Women ReBOOT LIVE! is an exciting step for Technology Ireland Software Skillnet, with the virtual rollout enabling the national delivery of frequent programs and rapid introduction of talented women returners.


July 1st saw a further 22 participants join the second virtual Women ReBoot Live program while Women TechStart was also rolled out virtually with 20 participants from all over Ireland starting the program. Women TechStart offers free professional and technical skills training and coaching over 6 weeks for new entrants to IT or those switching code as well as a career action plan to catapult participants into their future careers in IT.


The final day of Women ReBOOT LIVE Summer 2020 concluded with a Dragons Den Business Model Review bringing together the applied learnings of the program and enabled the women to showcase their understanding of the IT industry and opportunities today.

 

Technology Ireland Software Skillnet are working with our member companies to fill their tech skills gaps by making this amazing pool of emerging talent available to them right away.
