About Us

Helping young people shape their future through technology

Our Mission

Who we are

We believe that all young people should be empowered to take action on the things they care about most by shaping their future with technology.

We work with schools to provide free tech innovation courses to students, giving teachers ready-made education content, so young people from all backgrounds can develop computing and essential skills to change their world for the better. More than half of the schools we work with are in challenging circumstances.

With over a decade of experience, we’re an education-technology charity that is proud to partner with leading brands to keep our course content 100% free of charge to schools, as well as giving students the opportunity to directly benefit from their industry expertise.

How we work

Our purpose is to ensure all Young People have the tech innovation skills to thrive in an ever-changing world.

We give educators free course content and resources to teach students how to create a brighter future through technology. Our work is powered by:

1: Tech for Good

We believe that young people can shape their future through technology. We don’t just teach them to code - we teach the entrepreneurial skills they’ll need to become the tech innovators of tomorrow.

2: What matters to students

Young people are empowered by solving problems they care about. We teach how technology can have a positive impact and support them to design relevant tech products that will change their world for the better.

3: The need for essential skills

Our content develops the essential skills needed for future work, improving young people’s confidence, problem solving, collaboration and communication skills. We are accredited by Skillsbuilder and use their framework to aid student success.

4: Industry engagement

Our students build their products using processes that are aligned with industry. We connect them to real-world professionals to support their product ideas by providing feedback and career insights.

Our Team

Our expertise spans, tech sector, education, youth work and social good. We are supportive, collaborative, inclusive and empowering. We work alongside our educators and our partners to develop our courses to create the best outcomes for young people.
