Event Details

You're probably familiar with Gateshead College and its Creative and Technical IT courses but may not have heard of Dynamo North East.

Dynamo is an industry-led initiative focusing on growing the tech sector in the North East which employs 32,000 people.

Dynamo has four streams of activity:

  • Be a focal point for regional IT growth
  • Promote our region externally
  • Develop skills and education
  • Support regional research and development

 

This event, as part of Dynamo's IT Skills workstream, organised and hosted by Gateshead College, and inspired by an idea from Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy in Birtley, will bring schools, providers and initiatives together to share practical advice and experience and work towards:

  • More coding clubs and maker clubs in schools
  • Connecting schools with CPD and funding opportunities
  • Greater awareness of prospects of careers in IT
  • More women in IT
  • More IT apprentices
  • Support for schools with the computing curriculum / building coding skills
  • More IT companies engaging with schools around work experience, being a governor, sponsoring activities etc.
