Young Future Bristol
The young people of Bristol need to be equipped with digital skills today to make sure they are not excluded from accessing the growing future jobs market in the region’s digital and high tech sector. The school curriculum is not equipping pupils with these skills and most children from less privileged families do not have opportunities to gain these skills outside of the school setting. Young Future Bristol has been set up to target this future skills gap and build a new generation of coders and technologists and internationally to support the delivery of a technology engagement programme for young people. They provide the “kit” (laptops and Raspberry Pis) and technical expertise and guidance to help young people develop digital skills for the future workplace.
