28th April 2021- upReach and The Hg Foundation announce major new partnership to boost opportunities for disadvantaged students to access careers in the technology sector.

What is the upReach Tech500?

This ground-breaking partnership creates a new tailored programme of support for 500 undergraduates from disadvantaged backgrounds (the “upReach Tech500”) who are looking to secure graduate roles in the sector. Through close collaboration with leading technology employers, upReach will deliver a comprehensive programme of exclusive training, networking and development opportunities. These will be available to the upReach Tech500, and a further 2,500 students from lower socio-economic backgrounds all over the UK.

Further details are provided in the Launch Release.


If you are an employer interested in supporting the upReach Tech500, please register for our Employer Webinar on 11th May 2021, or contact us directly by emailing partnerships@upreach.org.uk

Students interested in a career in technology, and graduating in 2023 or 2024 can find more information about the programme or can apply to the programme by selecting Technology as their preferred Career Stream.
