Professional Pathways

What is it?

The Professional Pathways programme is a suite of sector specific training courses and paid 35 hour internships that will take place in June 2021.

Training is delivered by industry experts, to provide you with a firm grounding in the relevant sector. Following the employer-led training, you will undertake a paid 35 hour internship. Due to COVID-19, we have made a few changes to the 2021 programme. Please see the individual pages below for further information.

For more information on each Pathway, please see:

Please note: Pathways to Data Analytics is a separately funded Pathway, run through the Q-Step Centre Team. Dates and timings for this Pathway are therefore different, and for further details you can contact the team at
