Friends of GT Scholars – Do you have coding skills?
Happy Friday! The weekend is almost here and I hope that you are looking forward to it as much as I am. But before the week comes to an end, I’d like to tell you about an upcoming workshop, share an interesting blog with you and also announce a new partnership.
We need coding workshop facilitators!
We need workshop facilitators to help us with our summer coding workshop in August. The #DayOfCode workshop is a GT Scholars initiative in collaboration with Cyber Hive and Caius House. This three-day workshop will take place at Caius House in Battersea and will run from Tuesday 6th August until Thursday 8th August. If you or someone you know has experience in coding, please feel free to contact me or forward this email to them.
A guest blog on social mobility
On Monday 17th June, one of our volunteers attended the Major Speech with the Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP, Secretary of State for Education. The speech touched on the connection between disadvantaged students and educational attainment. Sarah-Jane Tollan wrote a guest blog about the speech and the Government’s view on the issue and how it plans to tackle it. Find out more by reading this interesting blog Blog
A new partnership!
We’re proud to announce that GT Scholars is now partnering with Bright Network. We’re really excited about this and think that together we can really make a difference. Bright Network’s mission is to help graduates and undergraduates get ahead in their careers by connecting them with the best career opportunities.
