Are you creative with a passion for people and technology? Have you ever wondered about a career in digital but don’t know where to start?

This free workshop will introduce you to the concept of user-centred design through hands-on activities and collaboration.

You’ll work with others to design a solution to a problem using fun activities that force you to think fast and without too much over-thinking!

You’ll learn from industry pros and start to explore a vast array of digital roles you never knew existed.

The event will be hosted on the Zoom video conferencing platform. Registered participants will be emailed a link with instructions on how to connect. You’ll receive this a few days prior to the event so there is plenty of time to test your setup.

You can download our event slide deck here.

Who can take part?

This event is aimed at anyone curious about user-centred design or who is considering a career in tech.

What will I need to take part?

  • A computer, tablet or mobile phone with internet connection, speakers/headphones, webcam (optional) and microphone
  • A4 plain paper and pens (felt tips are perfect!)
  • That’s all! No other prior knowledge necessary.
