About the Programme

We understand that academic education on its own is not able to unlock everyone’s potential, so we provide an alternative route. We run a leadership development programme that attracts high-quality tech professionals to voluntarily support children from low-income backgrounds. 

 

We’re delivering our next programme in January 2020, delivered by exceptional tech professionals, in a way that empowers school children to learn relevant professional tech skills. 

 

Our young people will be tasked with designing an app that addresses a cause and makes a difference to their local community. Alongside this, they will undertake weekly learning tasks that will improve their professional skills.

Programme Curriculum 

Our programme is designed around 5 key learning pillars, which collectively improve the chances of young people entering tech professions. Scroll over below to better understand how each pillar helps our young people to take a step forward.
