With the children now back at school for the new academic year, we've been reflecting on how the Switchplane team can help the next generation of young people.
...we'll be talking to pupils...at Gildredge House School careers fair about our Falling Birds game...Coming up on Wednesday 19th September, we'll be talking to pupils in Years 9, 10, and 11 at Gildredge House School careers fair about our Falling Birds game and how we developed it, giving them insight into careers in tech.
On Thursday 15 November, in partnership with The Digital Guild and Sussex Downs College, we'll be sponsoring a show on Eastbourne Youth Radio. Learners, staff, and families can listen in to find out about the new Digital Guild work experience platform we've been developing in the run up to the launch of the new T Levels in 2020.
We also hope to return to The BIG Futures Show next April to speak to students, and to continue supporting local CIC TechResort which is giving Eastbourne's 8 to 18 year olds the opportunity to code, make, and explore.
University of Bath Computer Science student, Tom Vanner, has also joined the Switchplane team as a developer for his year-long placement in industry. He'll be sharing his experiences and what he learns from within the Switchplane walls in a monthly video diary, which you can check out here.
