Getting employers involved in IT education
We’re working with employers and IT professionals to enrich the curriculum, inspire the next generation, and to help teachers with their professional development.
Computer Clubs for Girls (CC4G)
CC4G’s after-school clubs inspire girls aged 10-14 to consider IT-related futures by bringing technology to life through projects based on music, fashion and celebrity. All types of organisations can get involved by sponsoring a school. For sponsorship of £500, a school can run an after-school online CC4G club for a year. Sponsors often support a local club so they go in sometimes to encourage the girls in their work. No special IT knowledge is required.

BigAmbition encourages 14-19 year olds to enjoy IT and consider careers in technology. If you’re an IT professional or employer, upload your career or company profile to the BigAmbition website to inspire the next generation of IT professionals.

IT Ambassadors scheme
Fewer students than ever are choosing to study IT-related degrees at university and the sector is experiencing shortages as a result. IT Ambassadors aims to harness the enthusiasm of people who work in technology to inspire more students to take up rewarding careers in IT. From games designers to business analysts, software developers to project managers, IT professionals at any stage of their careers can become IT Ambassadors and get involved.
