We've launched our programme online for girls to learn from in May 2020Take me there!
Working together with national policy makers, local government, schools and industry leaders, we’ve created a UK-wide suite of educational programmes to tackle inequality, improve young people’s life chances, and help the UK compete on the world stage.
Through our educational programmes, we connect girls with real life industry role models, providing them with the opportunity to interact with leading employers and learn new digital skills.
Our educational programmes are industry led. The content of the programme is designed in collaboration with our partners, who represent some of the largest digital employers in the UK. This not only means our course content is current, but also improves the life chances of those who attend.
The InnovateHer programme is currently delivered within schools across the North West as an after school enrichment programme. We began by delivering our innovative, informal educational programme at FACT in Liverpool City Centre. The programme was application based and we quickly established that demand for places far outstripped what we could provide; we received 90 applications for just 15 places in the first cohort in October 2016.
Since then we have built a thriving community of girls aged 13-16, who regularly engage with us and each other. We realised that we needed to take our model into schools to enable us to reach many more girls from a broader range of backgrounds, and to remove any barriers to them attending.
We’ve since reached over 1,000 girls across the UK, from over 50 schools.
In 2020 we launched our new online educational programmes to expand our reach to girls all over the UK. You can find out more here.
The programme is funded through a mixture of private and public sector funding. We work with partners to enable the course to remain at a low cost, keeping our educational programme free for the individual girls.
