Working with the education and skills sector, the People and Skills team at the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership, and other organisations promoting high tech opportunities for learners, we are developing practical actions to enhance the connection between industry and schools, colleges and Universities.
The primary initiative from this SIG is the support for, and delivery, of DigiLocal. DigiLocal is supporting community centres, spaces and schools in delivering high quality tech clubs for kids across the Bristol and Bath region. We do this by providing free access to equipment, project resources and through STEMNET highly qualified mentors. We also work with national and international initiatives to ensure the best content for young people. You can find out more from our short review of the initiative here.
