Software Cornwall Shows Nexus Students Future Career Options

By on May 9, 2018 in Blog |

Software development is one of the fastest growing employment sectors in Cornwall. Software Cornwall is the industry body tasked with trying to raise the profile of programming in local schools in an attempt to fill the growing skills shortage.

Many of our Nexus students are budding programmers and they had the opportunity to hear from Richard Armitage from Software Cornwall this week as he explained the work that software engineers do and why learning to code is such a vital skill which will make them very much more employable in the future.

We were delighted that Richard came to talk to our students and highlighted some of the amazing opportunities open to them as they develop their coding skills; from work experiences placements to the Mission to Mars competition.
