About @futureCodersSE

Started in 2016, @futureCodersSE aims to create great coders and to link them with employers. We work with young people, aged between 16 and 24. We help them learn to code through our education programme, of hackathons, coding workshops, project workshops and careers events. We help them to become more skilled and more employable through our work experience programme. We certify their skills, attitudes and behaviours in line with the SFIA skills framework and introduce them to employers.

We don't pretend coding is easy and we encourage all our young participants to work hard, to practice their skills and so to improve. We know that this has benefits in terms of employability and digital literacy.

We work with schools, colleges, youth organisations and businesses to identify, encourage and develop young people. Young people can apply directly to be part of our work-experience programme, or might be identified and encouraged through our education programme. Our certification process can help employers have more confidence in recruiting a young person.

Our mission...

Is to increase the number of UK educated, skilled, young developers in the talent pool to help digital businesses in the UK thrive for generations to come.
