  • This event has passed.

Sage Foundation & Tech for Life have begun their search for the UK’s #FutureMakers.

What’s it all about?

Sage Foundation & Tech for Life have teamed up to scour the country seeking out the UK’s future inventors, trailblazers and innovators. We’ll be armed with coding and AI experts who’ll be sharing their skills and knowledge in a bid to find the next best UK tech leaders. The chance to win an exclusive work experience placement at a top tech company like Sage is up for grabs!

Who should come along?

We are looking to find the next inventor of Siri or Alexa! If you’re 18 or under with an interest in design and programming, we want to hear from you! We’ll be covering everything from concept to development of a fully functioning ChatBot and we need a host of budding designers and developers to help out. Knowledge of basic python is required!

We are currently collecting expressions of interest from young people and will be back in touch with all applicants after the Easter holidays to let you know if you’ve made it though to the first step!

This is an amazing opportunity to develop your skills, enchance your CV and get ahead of the rest. A phenomenal future career in tech awaits…

What to expect

The second stage of our three-step Future Makers Lab programme will be taking place in Manchester! Here’s a break down of what will happen:

Step 1

You’ll be invited to join us in The Federation on Saturday 28th April for a one day hands-on workshop where you will learn about ChatBots and how to create them with the help of experts from Sage UK’s very own tech team.

Sage UK will be spotting the top talent to invite them to…

Step 2

Twenty of the best digital superstars we’ve spotted on our nationwide tour will be invited to join us for the second stage workshop in September 2018. It’s here that you’ll develop your own project using AI. Sage’s leading tech mentors will be on hand to help you create, design and build the future…

Step 3

By October 2018, a select crew of creators, the ninjas of tech, will be offered work experience in a top UK company. This is a once in a life-time chance to find out what it’s like to be part of an exciting, innovative tech team.

Alexa, Siri, Tesla… what’s next? The future of tech is in your hands!
