Play your part in inspiring the next generation

We are dedicated to ensuring every child in England receives high-quality computing education, powering up the next digital generation. We equip and empower teachers across England with confidence and expertise, so that they can teach the national computing curriculum in an exciting and engaging way.

We are calling on businesses and government to join us in equipping young people with the necessary skills for the future. Through the collaboration between education, government and industry we can connect the knowledge learnt through the curriculum with its real-world application and leading edge technology innovations, enabling students to achieve their full potential in a digital world.

Growing Demand

The demand for computing expertise is growing – with an estimated 1.9 million STEM professionals needed by 2035. More professionals are needed to fill jobs in computing, engineering, environmental sciences industries and more.

Deliver social value through investing in improving young people’s life outcomes

Donate money to our programme to provide more young people with access to educational opportunities and to learn from great teachers and develop vital skills needed for careers in tech and STEM industries.

By helping create universal access to computing education for all young people and investing in improving teaching practices, you can deliver significant social value and contribute to your organisation’s CSR and ESG strategies.

Each teacher we work with reaches 100 children every year and teachers are cited as the second most influential person on their career choices.

STEM Ambassador volunteers are more productive in their jobs and 90% say volunteering has increased their job satisfaction.

90% of young people said engaging with employers increased their understanding of why STEM subjects are important in the workplace.

“With the ever-growing demand for digital skills, it is important that students are equipped with industry-aligned skills that will set them up for success in the workplace as well as gaining insight into different career paths. The NCCE help us bridge the gap between industry and education, inspiring more young people into tech careers.”

“At TCS, we believe we are all born with equal potential, but not with equal opportunity. TCS empowers people and communities by connecting them to opportunities in the digital economy. Partnering with NCCE and STEM Learning is an important aspect of this work, building equitable and inclusive educational pathways for marginalised groups, young people, women and girls underrepresented in the technology space.”
