About Us

TechFuture Careers, a brand new website to inspire young people into tech careers, is currently under development

The new site is being developed by the Tech Partnership, the organisation which has taken over the work of e-skills UK (the company behind the BigAmbition website).

The Tech Partnership is a growing network of employers creating the skills for the digital economy. The Partnership works to inspire young people about technology, accelerate the flow of talented people from all backgrounds into technology careers and help companies develop the technology skills they need for the future.

Our programmes and how they're driving change

Tech Future Careers shows students, teachers and careers advisors the limitless opportunities the tech sector has to offer though industry-designed videos, talks and games. 81% of users said they were more likely to pursue an IT degree after using the site.

Tech Future Girls encourages girls aged 9-14 to learn vital tech skills through free activities and after-school clubs, tackling the tech skills gender gap and fostering a new generation of tech stars.

Tech Future Classroom
supports students studying computer science GCSEs and A-levels through projects and activities designed by the tech industry, helping them develop the real-life skills they need to get ahead in the tech sector.

Tech Future Ambassadors across the UK are inspiring young people by visiting schools and sharing their enthusiasm for tech with young people. This growing network of over 300 tech role models leads activities on coding, programming, algorithms and more.

Why is change needed?

  • The tech sector workforce makes up 5% of the entire UK workforce.
  • Employment of tech specialists is growing over four times faster that other UK professions.
  • 134,000 new entrants a year are needed to fill tech specialist job roles in the UK.

Yet 42% of employers are struggling to fill tech specialist vacancies and only 16% of these specialists are female.

Join us and inspire the next generation through our Employer Schools Network.
