A free 9 week hybrid programme introducing women to digital career opportunities and support in Cornwall
TECwomen have received funding to run digitalUPLIFT as part of the Digital Futures Partnership, managed by Truro & Penwith College, funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
digitalUPLIFT is a free 9-week skills development programme designed for women*, to provide training, showcase the opportunities within Cornwall’s tech sector and support women into tech jobs or onto a training pathway towards one.
Join us to learn some of the most in-demand tech skills. With content written and developed by industry experts and leading employers in Cornwall. The course will include:
Intro to Tech/Digital Jobs

Business Analysis and Project Delivery
*digitalUPLIFT is open to anyone whose gender expression is underrepresented in the tech sector.
The aim of the course is to give you a chance to try something new and increase your ability to get a job in tech in Cornwall. Each session is only 1.5-2 hours long with most being delivered online in pre-recorded videos, so you can learn at a time that works best for you.
Alongside the course content we will also provide:
A one-to-one mentoring programme
Supported online and in-person employability skills development
Networking opportunities with local employers who actively want to hire more underrepresented people
Support with further training pathways and job opportunities
This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. Cornwall Council has been chosen by Government as a Lead Authority for the fund and is responsible for monitoring the progress of projects funded through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Connecting training with jobs.
A key benefit of the digitalUPLIFT course is the connection to real highly skilled digital and tech jobs across Cornwall and the South West. Thank you to all our sponsors who advised on the courses and are working with us to help women move into these high-demand roles.
