Following on from the huge success of 'Wales Tech Week' in July, Technology Connected in partnership with Working Wales, now invite you to join us for 'Level Up: Working in Tech 2020' which will take place on Wednesday 18th November 2020.

This unique, online event, will focus on the career and training opportunities available in the technology sector in Wales. It will especially look to assist those who may have become displaced as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic – undergraduates, graduates, those facing redundancy and those who are considering retraining and/or moving into a completely new sector.

Through panel sessions, special guest speakers and sector driven, facilitated breakout rooms, attendees will learn about career routes into technology, retraining opportunities and advice from those who have made the transition into the industry from other sectors.

Wales has a vibrant technology industry enabling all other sectors and markets. 'Level Up: Working in Tech 2020', will act as a beacon of opportunity and practical advice for those looking to restart or transition into this fast-paced, all-encompassing sector, which now, more than ever, is transforming the way we work and the way we live.

By coming together as a community we can inspire and support others to join our sector through knowledge, skills and resource sharing.

Partner with us or sponsor an exclusive breakout session;  get in touch.
