Calling all ambitious women in tech! Apply for Special Edition today

Applications are now open for TRC’s Special Edition: a ‘life-changing’ professional development programme for women in Scotland’s digital and tech sector looking to progress their careers in the industry.

At TRC we believe that gender equality in the boardroom is paramount to the wider diversity of Scotland’s digital sector, which is why we created Special Edition to empower women to achieve their full potential and claim their place in the boardroom.

What to expect?

Special Edition is a six-month training programme delivered by TRC: a Glasgow-based training body for the broadcast and digital industries.

Monthly training sessions will help boost your confidence, improve your entrepreneurial skills, expand professional networks and progress your career in digital. The initiative includes formal workshops delivered by leading industry trainers PLUS an international field trip to meet with inspiring people making moves in the digital world.

The programme has supported 42 women in Scotland’s digital sector since its launch in 2013, many of whom have gone on to secure significant job promotions and board appointments since completing the programme.

Delegates of last year’s programme said:

“My Special Edition experience has been absolutely life-changing. I was promoted to a new and exciting role as a result of an opportunity I seized thanks only to confidence gained during the course. I have a whole new mindset and perspective that has changed how I think, how I feel about myself and what I have to offer the world. That's the greatest outcome, and more than I ever expected.” Serina MacDonald, Head of Activation, Associate Director at Amplifi - part of the Dentsu Aegis Network

"Special Edition is a sisterhood and the most valuable network I'll ever have in my career." 
Alanna Innes, Product Owner at xDesign

"To anyone thinking about applying for the course, don't even think about it. Just do it. I pondered for a while before applying as I doubted that I would be good enough to be selected. You are good enough! Given everything I have learned, the confidence gained and my improved mindset, it scares me to think what I would have missed out on had I not clicked that button!"
Serina MacDonald, Head of Activation, Associate Director at Amplifi
