Today is International Girls Day and we were delighted to officially launch the Loreto Secondary School ‘#IT Girls’ TY Coding Programme. This is a year-long transition year IT Programme for girls which is sponsored and supported by Optum and is being delivered in partnership with LYIT. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students. Throughout the year our students will have the opportunity to meet with female tech employees who will serve as role models for our students and also help to deliver some of the practical aspects of the programme. This programme is a great example of how through collaboration between industry and the local education sector we can upskill our young people, particularly girls!

Our students will receive a certificate from Optum and LYIT on completion of the course.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank both Optum and LYIT for their support and commitment to this programme. Click here for PDF brochure Final Optum IT GIRLS
