Empowering girls to choose tech careers

Empowering girls to choose tech careers

Our academy is working with a national organisation to inspire girls to think about careers in the tech industry, which has been male-dominated for too long.  InnovateHer is an 8 week, after school programme dedicated to giving girls ages 12-16 the self-belief and skills they need to pursue a career in technology, and some of our students are lucky enough to be part of this initiative.

In November, the InnovateHer group went on a visit to Co-op head office 1 Angel Square and tech hub The Federation, to meet professionals who work in the tech sector and find out about digital careers. They also met the North Coders to find out more about coding.
