Inspiring & Accelerating Young Talent

At the Hub we've learnt that talented young people are capable of extraordinary things. We've come to believe that learning is non-linear. Eg, a smart, self-motivated 15-year-old with the good support & the right opportunities can be capable of learning university level content and doing professional-level work.

The Hub’s Web Development Cadetship offers talented students the opportunity to learn hands-on skills that are highly sought after in the technology industry and provide a fantastic onramp into high value careers. Cadets will learn what it's like to work in a professional team that builds apps, games and platform products.

The program aims to inspire cadets to follow these exciting vocational pathways by offering them the chance to learn and earn. They learn hands-on skills through classes taught by experts and they get to demonstrate those skills by working on intellectually-challenging projects. They earn through paid internship opportunities and by teaching others what they’ve learned.

Overview

Through weekly workshops and projects, Cadets will develop valuable professional and functional skills: working collaboratively in a tech team, agile project management, software development lifecycle. Functional skills include interface design, web development, working with data, deployment to the cloud and testing.
