Launchpad Tech Apprenticeships

It isn’t often that seasoned professionals open their doors and invite you in to see the inner workings of their craft. Smart, motivated, and ambitious, students will quickly see that this is an opportunity they can not afford to let slip away!
If:
  • Designing and building apps excites you
  • Beautiful user interfaces make you happy
  • Creating useful products through prototyping and 3D printing sounds fun
  • Solving complex problems with beautiful lines of code intrigues you
