NE Youth Vacancies

 

Generation Code Champion Volunteer Roles Available 

Are you aged 16 – 25, interested in coding/digital skills then this could be for you!
 
NE Youth are working in partnership with Microsoft and UK Youth to deliver Generation Code, and are looking to train up a number of Code Champions aged 16-25 years old.  No coding experience is needed as you will be invited to a train the trainer workshop which will train you up and support you in your role. This will allow you to take the lead, with support from NE Youth on delivering regular coding activities to young people aged 11 – 19, in your area, sparking an interest in code through themed activities that are relevant to their interests, whether that be fashion, sport or space etc.  

The Generation Code programme provides coding opportunities and allows young people (aged 11 – 19) to develop new skills and spark interest in coding. It allows young people to get creative, develop computational thinking and coding skills to become better equipped to take advantage of the opportunities in a world that is becoming digital-by-default.

90% of all jobs require digital skills to some degree and the UK needs another 745,000 workers with digital skills in 2017. Young people are expected to make up a third of the global workforce by 2020, but many lack the digital skills to enable them to take advantage of these increasing digital opportunities. Generation Code addresses the lack of skills in computer science in young people, empowering them to become digital creators in an ever-changing global society.

This is an unpaid voluntary role, but we are able to offer travel expenses, and a full induction and training programme will be provided to support you in your role.

For more information, please get in touch with Louise Laws, Development Manager at NE Youth – E: louise@neyouth.org.uk
