Description

THE GAP IS CLOSING – WALES IS LISTENING TO INDUSTRY

Come and join us on November 6 where we will hear about one of Wales’ flagship projects in the digital skills agenda – Cardiff University’s National Software Academy (NSA). This project is a collaboration between the University and Welsh Government, which works in partnership with industry to address the hot topic….the digital skills gap.

We’ll be hearing from local industry leaders who have benefitted from working closely with the National Software Academy, as well as hearing a graduate’s perspective on the benefits of studying there, while working on live industry projects and the opportunities it brings. The Academy lead will also explain how other tech businesses big and small can get involved with this ground-breaking education project and with the wider University.

This Digital Tuesday is open to all, whether you’re a local tech business, a student, work in academia, or just curious to find out more.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to come and visit the NSA’s new home and meet the people at the heart of it all!

The easiest way to get to the venue is by train! It’s only a 2-minute walk from Newport train station (you can thank us later!) If you do need to park then is a NCP car park near by on High St.
