On 25 June we welcomed the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) Regional Mayor Tim Bowles to KWMC and KWMC: The Factory to meet two groups of women currently taking part in our digital training programmes.

Over the last few months, the groups have been learning a range of skills to help them design and build everything from furniture and digitally-manufactured products to their own websites and brands.

The training programmes – Making It and From Her Digital – are part of the Women into Digital Jobs, Education and Training (WIDJET) project, which is supported by WECA and aims to support women to find jobs in digital roles and address the under-representation of women in the digital sector.

Making It is based at KWMC: The Factory and supports participants to learn a range of skills including how to use digital design software, follow a design process, and use digital manufacturing technologies and machinery including laser cutters and 3D Printers.

From Her Digital sessions take place at KWMC and are designed to equip participants with the skills, knowledge and tools to embark on a career in the digital industry, such as web development, digital marketing or graphic design.

Making It and From Her Digital are part of the Women into Digital Jobs, Education and Training (WIDJET) project. WIDJET is a West of England Combined Authority project, funded by the Government’s Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.
