There is no doubt that the technology sector is one of the largest and most rapidly growing industries in the world. With this global shift comes a responsibility to ensure that everyone has access to understand and get involved in it. We want to play our part in London by ensuring that students, whether at school or university, are learning about the world’s tech focused future while embracing the opportunities to work and have an impact within this field.
This programme is designed to encourage students in underprivileged areas of London to gain insight into the technology and finance industry. We plan to partner with five schools this year, targeting those with students from lower socio-economic backgrounds and a high percentage of eligibility for free school meals. We hope to inspire students by connecting them with the skills, firms and resources that will enable them to think bigger than ever.
