We are delighted to offer our Transition Year Students the opportunity to take part in our Coding programme.
This programme is delivered in collaboration with Letterkenny IT and is supported by Optum.
As a Company and a major employer operating in the Letterkenny area, Optum is committed to supporting the local education sector.
Optum is also committed to the principle of diversity and it is important that teaching and learning in IT and computing are accessible in particular to young women as research shows that women are underrepresented in the tech industry.
There are increasing employment opportunities in the IT sector and IT skills and knowledge are transferrable and highly sought-after across all sectors.
Optum will also commit IT staff to support the delivery of the programme and support relevant events to promote the programme.
Letterkenny IT will provide a certificate in conjunction with Optum to students on successful completion of the programme.
