StepIn2Tech is a new digital skills training programme developed by Microsoft Ireland, in partnership with FIT, that will equip 10,000 people with the digital skills required to transfer to emerging and in-demand roles within the digital economy. Whilst StepIn2Tech was developed in response to the displacement of thousands of workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it also supports those who have either recently left school or college or are mid-career and interested in developing their digital skills. StepIn2Tech aims to bridge a growing skills gap within the Irish economy by providing learners with much sought after technical skills that will open up a range of new opportunities – from further training and education to gain an entry level role in the growing technology sector, to helping to drive digital transformation in a traditional sector.
After signing-up you will have the opportunity to benchmark and build your digital skills through an engaging and supportive online learning platform guided by a dedicated mentor, your Digi-Chaperone. Once your course is completed you can then take the next step in your pathway to a career in the technology sector.
