The Cloud Skills Show Episode 6: Student Special

Recording now available

In our final episode of The Cloud Skills Show (Series 1), we're meeting student learners from the UK and further afield to find out about some of the resources that Microsoft has to offer.

We heard about:

  • The Microsoft Learn Student Ambassadors programme, recently launched to replace Microsoft Student Partner. Learn how students can be part of the programme, just by completing a Learning Path on Microsoft Learn.
  • Stories from current Student Ambassadors about their experiences and how they got involved.
  • Resources on Microsoft Learn for Students.
  • Imagine Cup 2021 - how to enter and get involved.
  • The Student Zone at Microsoft Ignite (22-24 Sept) - what to expect.
