I joined as a mentor to the Future in Tech programme earlier this year and am working with a group of students who are completing the Cybersecurity Analyst course. At the outset, I wasn’t sure what I was signing up to but thought it would be an opportunity to share some of my experiences with students. I’ve being doing the role for a number of months now and really enjoy the role. The students are enthusiastic, highly engaged and it’s great to hear about their progress and to play a small part in helping them to achieve success. If you can spare the time and think this might be something that you could do, I encourage you to get involved. You won’t regret it.Michael O’Dwyer,
This course offers a great insight in to the world of digital marketing. There’s a huge amount of content available through online and live classes, meaning there’s ample opportunity to engage with professionals in the field. There’s also plenty of engagement with other students on the programme, particularly through the group project. I’d highly recommend it to anyone thinking of working in the field, or to those who simply want to understand it more.Diane R.
Digital Marketing Pathway
This is my biggest opportunity within Technology in Ireland, if I had not been doing the Future in Tech Cloud Practitioner Pathway I might not have gotten this job. The Future in Tech course Tutor helps us see our potential, everyone who was recruited with me for this job was in the field either by studying or by having worked in the industry, this is a great opportunity for me, I still have lots to learn. My Mentor in Future in Tech is very knowledgeable and a great support to me.Talita L.
