Our programmes and how they're driving change

Tech Future Ambassadors across the UK are inspiring young people by visiting schools and sharing their enthusiasm for tech with young people. This growing network of over 300 tech role models leads activities on coding, programming, algorithms and more.
Why is change needed?
- The tech sector workforce makes up 5% of the entire UK workforce.
- Employment of tech specialists is growing over four times faster that other UK professions.
- 134,000 new entrants a year are needed to fill tech specialist job roles in the UK.
Yet 42% of employers are struggling to fill tech specialist vacancies and only 16% of these specialists are female.
