North East tech start up launches Gateshead College partnership for expansion
A North East tech start up has announced that it is driving forward its expansion with a new partnership.
INFINITY 27, which is based in Gateshead’s PROTO technology centre, is creating future jobs for up to 10 young people in the coming year with its new Gateshead College partnership.
The company designs and develops next-generation immersive content including augmented and virtual reality.
The new T Levels programme will give students hands-on work experience, and will lead to jobs after completion.
Deni Chambers, assistant principal at Gateshead College, said: “The partnership with INFINITY 27 is a fantastic example of how T Levels will have an impact on the future workforce, especially in the digital sector which requires a very specific skillset.
“A big hurdle faced in the digital and immersive technology sector is gaps in knowledge about the new technology being implemented which is why on-the-job experience is vital alongside classroom learning to ensure those learning remain current and skills developed are ahead of the curve.
“We hope INFINITY 27 sets a precedent for other North East businesses in seeking the opportunities T Level qualifications can provide to their business in equipping their workforces with work ready, relevant skills.”
