By 2020, nearly every job will require basic digital skills. We believe that everyone in the UK should have access to the tools they need to be successful.

These workshops allow us to inspire young people who may not realise how exciting technology can be and how diverse the opportunities are – this is really important and I am proud to be part of that.
