Helping to inform and inspire young people

East London Digital Club

Latest

How to go about building app using Agile Methodology: 21 Feb

Project Description

A really fantastic pilot where we'll create an East London Digital Club, for 11-18 year olds.  Our aim is to create excitement around the digital sector, encouraging employers to get involved, so skills shortages can be addressed at an early age.  This will result in a more highly skilled workforce – thus benefiting both young people and employers.  

The club will cover a range of digital skills, will employers leading sessions - giving an introduction to hacing, coding, gaming, digital marketing, VFX, emerging technologies, smart cities, big data and more!

Every week, after school, young people will attend the club, which is based at Hackney Community College in Shoreditch.

We are aiming to have an official launch at the end of the pilot and see the club continuing in years to come.
