Warrington & Vale Royal College announces a new partnership with InnovateHer

We are delighted to announce our new partnership with InnovateHer, a unique extra-curricular enterprise support programme with a mission to ‘get girls ready for the tech industry, and the industry ready for girls’.

Through InnovateHer’s educational programme, our students will connect with real-life industry role models, providing them with the opportunity to interact with leading employers and learn new digital skills.

InnovateHer is one of the many new partners the college has established since the opening of its Advanced Creative & Digital Skills (ACDS) Centre in September 2022 and Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering Training (AMET) Centres in 2021.

The first of its kind in the country, the ACDS Centre offers industry-specific courses, resources and skills through the use of innovative technology and facilities. It’s the perfect place for people looking to pursue or advance their careers in the creative and digital sectors, with courses in art & design, fashion, computing & IT, graphic design, games design, media or performing arts.

Steph Doyle, Business Centre Manager for the college’s ACDS Centre said: “We are excited to join InnovateHer’s battle against inequality and, through their educational programme, help to improve young people’s life chances. This partnership will help to inform and inspire the college’s curriculum intent, ensuring it is inclusive and diverse, and reaching out to females across all of STEM. It will also provide us with key links to tech industry experts, providing opportunities for our students such as masterclasses and workshops.”

A representative from InnovateHer commented: “We are absolutely delighted to announce that Warrington & Vale Royal College has started their journey with us. Their support means we can continue to provide teens with free, inspiring and accessible tech education. It’s change-makers like them that are creating a safe space in the sector.”
