University Technical College (UTC) Heathrow

CNet Training is proud to partner with University Technical College UTC Heathrow in delivering the Digital Futures Programme

The CNet Training team is proud to work with UTC Heathrow, the first University Technical College dedicated to the data centre sector, and industry partners in helping shape and deliver the curriculum for 14-19 year olds to prepare them for a future career within the data centre sector.

Developed alongside leading industry organisations, the Digital Futures Programme allows students to gain the essential knowledge and skills needed to thrive in technical careers within the data centre sector. This sector is currently experiencing unprecedented growth, which is only set to continue, but is facing an ongoing skills shortage. This new programme will help to future-proof the industry by inspiring a new generation to join it and enjoy a rewarding career.

The programme curriculum is designed in close collaboration with industry partners; leading global organisations Amazon Web Services, ARK Data Centres (Crown Hosting Data Centres Limited), CBRE, CNet Training (CNet), CyrusOne, Kao Data, LMG, Soben, Virtus Data Centres, and Yondr who have all committed significant funding and resources to the programme to guarantee students receive a first-class technical education.

It’s great to be working together to encourage young people to join the amazing digital infrastructure industry and help to tackle the skills shortage. Read more here.
