The London CLC Junior Developer Challenge brings together young people from across South London in a 12 week programme of mentorship from industry, finishing with a competition for teams of children.
The project aims to:
– Develop young people’s teamwork, collaboration, presentation, programming and digital skills.
– Engage parents in supporting their children in digital activities.
– Enhance teachers’/educators’ skills, confidence and knowledge.
– Bridge the digital skills gap between education and the 21st-century jobs market.
Last year we ran the Junior Developer Challenge with IBM, with the final competition happening at the IBM headquarters on Southbank. see the blog below to see what happened on the day:
