Pathways into tech careers for students

Pathways into tech careers for students

 

New Zealand secondary school students explored future careers in tech during Techweek2020. 

In 2020, Techweek partnered with the Ministry of Education to facilitate a series of events around the country that enabled students to connect to the world of work and explore industry-specific careers while in school.

These virtual face-to-face events provided opportunities for students to connect with local employers and recent tech graduates to learn more about their path to employment, the world of tech careers and explore industry-specific careers.

These events were sponsored by the Ministry of Education.
