  • New careers in Technology on show 2015

    On Wednesday 28th January, Year 9 students spent the day at a fantastic event at the BBC. “Technacool” was a day designed to get Year 9 girls thinking about careers in technology by participating in interesting workshops and listening to professionals within the BBC speak about their careers. The girls were broken into groups with other schools to try out 3D printing, app building and network management amongst other areas. Over a working lunch our students spoke to women who are leading technology areas within the company, such as the head of iPlayer. Perhaps the highlight was a tour of the places in the building where the public are not usually allowed, such as Radio 1 Live Lounge, green rooms and the set of BBC London news. It was a really informative and inspiring day that led to our girls considering jobs they did not previously know existed.
