Starting the 15th of May, we’re running a 2-week project as part of a Tech Talent Ready programme offered by Sunderland Software City. You’ll be learning a wide range of digital skills and experiencing what it’s like working in the tech industry.
The programme will give you the opportunity of experiencing working in a tech environment while learning a range of highly valuable digital skills.
During the two weeks, you will be taken through ideation, branding, design, visual development and a product launch strategy.
At the end of the two weeks, you’ll be able to present your fully functional prototype and marketing plan to the group, where you can go into further detail on how you came up with the concept, the features and the functionality, as well as who your target audience is and how you would take your prototype to market.
You'll also have the opportunity to meet our team who have a huge variety of skills between them, including our Managing Director, Head of Design, Head of Operations and development team - it's the perfect chance to ask any burning questions about their roles!
And if this wasn’t convincing enough, you’ll be guaranteed an interview with us if you’re eager to find a career in the digital industry.

Don’t just take our word for it
In our previous programme, one of our recruits created a prototype, named Bloom, which helped individuals connect with mentors who inspire them - as well as an idea named StyleMe that connects you with the best salons in your area and provides you with inspiration and trends in the hair industry.
Michael, whose idea was to develop a platform to connect students with potential mentors, said
“The bootcamp was fantastic! It gave a great overview of a project life cycle covering all aspects - concept, design and build through marketing and launch. A hands-on experience with knowledgeable mentors. Land Digital staff are friendly and super supportive, making for a really enjoyable two weeks.”

Rosie, who also attended our last programme, came up with the idea of creating a place where people can find upcoming bands and gigs in their area.

Over the course of the 2-week programme, attendees learned how to:
- Perform product-focused keyword research
- Develop a product from initial idea to final launch
- Build an engaging landing page and social media marketing plan to promote their prototype effectively
This hands-on learning concluded with our attendees giving a live prototype demo, as they guided the Land team through the features and benefits as they might in a professional pitch.
