Helping to build a stronger, younger, digital workforce in Kent.
We aim to help build a stronger, younger, digital workforce in Kent, especially in the area of software development, where these skills are rare and will certainly increase in importance in the very near future.
to inspire young adults to think about digital careers and to provide opportunities for them to prepare for them
to educate young adults so that they are able to design, write and test programs for computerised devices
to provide rich, project-based work experience through which young adults can develop coding skills and soft skills and become ready for employment.
We do this by:
running coding workshops where young adults can begin to learn to code and can then improve their skills
arranging inspirational events with information about careers, tech businesses, new technologies and opportunities for networking
providing project-based, team-based, work experience for 16-24 years olds to help them to build technical and soft skills ready for the workplace
working with businesses to explore ways to offer high quality work experience in a software related placement
Our project teams consist of two or three students, one or two volunteers and a professional lead developer. Teams develop bespoke software for charities, non-profits, community groups and social startups. We take a bit longer than professional developers but we operate in the same way and produce good quality products.
