Barclays B in Tech (26 April)

  • Join Barclays for our “B in Tech” event to inspire our next generation of technologists!
  • Target group – S2 pupils
  • The world runs on code!  So, if you learn to code, you can have a fun, well-paid and interesting job for life!
  • Event format:
    • 10am arrival at Barclays world-class Glasgow campus in Tradeston
    • Talks from inspirational industry leaders in the Barclays Technology team, explaining what it’s like to work in Tech
    • Pupils split into 3 groups to rotate around the following activities:
      • A tour of the Barclays Eagle Lab, where tech innovators and digital creators work on the latest, greatest tech
      • A tour of the Barclays workspace, showing what it’s really like to work in tech (we don’t just hide in dark rooms writing code!)
      • A fun, practical coding activity – even if you’ve never coded before, this is a great chance to try some fun coding games with Barclays coders
    • Lunch provided
    • Hear from Graduate Apprentices who work in Technology at Barclays, and why they chose an apprenticeship
    • Depart – 2pm
  • Capacity: 90 pupils maximum for each event (plus at least 9 school staff to maintain the 1:10 staff:pupil ratio)
