Code Club for schools is 'on target' to reach training levels for teachers

Antony Savvas | Sept. 15, 2014
Code Club, the nationwide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11, says it is on track to meet its target of signing up 25 percent of primary schools across the country by the end of 2015.

"The high level of take up in Tower Hamlets has shown the importance of buy-in from the local community, business leaders such as Canary Wharf Group, technology professionals and schools."

Sir George Iacobescu, chairman and chief executive officer of Canary Wharf Group, said, "As a leading business and technology cluster, companies at Canary Wharf are increasingly looking for advanced IT skills and our partnership with Code Club is enabling us to help local young people tap into the digital revolution. The Level39 technology accelerator can help both high-potential tech start-ups and the younger members of our community."
