Overview

The IT sphere is unceasingly developing in Ukraine and offers a lot of opportunities for development and employment.

 

The course "Introduction to IT" is open for women from Kyiv, Poltava, Lviv, and Kharkiv regions. The course will help to gain basic knowledge and skills for further education and career growth in the IT field.

 

You will level up your computer and Internet literacy and will find out the specifics of IT in Ukraine. In particular, you’ll learn about the major professions: from marketing to software testing. And, of course, how can we learn without practice? You will try yourself in a variety of IT roles and figure out what you like best.
