EyUp is a proud Yorkshire venture which is creating software developers, generating jobs and investing in start-ups across the North of England.

The UK economy is crying out for digital skills. In Yorkshire alone, there are more than 150,000 digital tech job openings a year – and the numbers are growing. CEOs desperately need people with tech talent to help their companies grow.

We are not short in aptitude – around half of the population has the natural problem-solving abilities we look for in software developers. But we are short in numbers as they currently stand.

EyUp is on a mission to plug the digital skills gap. Starting in Yorkshire, we are teaching people tech skills, finding them jobs as developers, nurturing their start-ups and contributing to personal, social and economic wellbeing.

Education should be the foundation of regeneration and EyUp will help individuals realise their potential and spread success across our communities.
