What is Techtrails?
Do you want to know more about all of the exciting careers in technology?
With so many careers to consider, we know it can be overwhelming to start on your career journey. Techtrails aims to demystify jobs in technology and science, and showcase the skills needed for your future in STEM.
As well as our school incursions where you get to meet amazing women working in technology, we also have a range of resources to help you explore these careers right now!
In Techtrails Online you can hear from a range of inspiring role models who tell you about their careers and the choices they made to get where they are now.
Whatever your dream or passion we hope you take something away with you today to get you started on your own ‘Techtrail’.
Techtrails Careers Discovery Platform (Toolkit)
Our online toolkit features an expansive list of STEM & Future jobs, from Robot Ethicist to Quantum Computer Programmer.
Simply choose the subjects and/or personality traits that you most enjoy and find out what career of the future could be yours!
This initiative sees the Techtrails STEM & Future Skills experience move into the digital world creating a “self-serve” experience for students, educators and career influencers.
Techtrails Online is a series of digital modules featuring links to future careers and video content showcasing inspiring female STEM role models.
Although accessible by all, this exciting new initiative has been designed to inspire especially young women and girls for a future in STEM, and give them the opportunity to explore where these skills could take them. For more details have a look at our Digital Resources page.
