Real world project

Begin your work project to simulate real-life tasks you’d be responsible for during an internship at a technology firm. You'll benefit from the opportunity to submit your work and receive insights into how you've performed, as well as where you could improve in future. 

Recognition

After you've finished the project you'll have access to a final skills session and some exclusive new content recorded for December 2020. You'll also receive a certificate on completion of all stages of the course, which demonstrates your skills and ability to employers.
