We have awarded £20,000 (over one year) to St John's Church Waterloo for the Coding Unlocked project. 'Coding Unlocked' is a pilot 8 week course (4 weeks training and 4 weeks work experience). Young people will take part in an intensive web development course coupled with employability skills training. The most successful of these will then go on to 4 weeks paid work experience at a Southbank-based company. They will also be linked with a Community Sponsor via Citizens UK who will mentor them through their training (a process pioneered by Citizens UK Good Jobs campaign).
These listings follow a blog format - comments are welcome (use the 'add comment' link).
We especially welcome comments from grantees telling us how the project is going
