From education to employment

Institute of Coding to host ‘Building your Confidence’ Workshop as part of #LondonTechWeek

The Institute of Coding (IoC), a national collaboration of industry, government, educators and outreach providers is working to respond to the digital skills gap in the UK. The IoC is committed to increasing diversity both in higher education and in the workplace and to mark the beginning of London Tech Week, is hosting a special interactive workshop entitled ‘Building your Confidence’.

The event, which takes place between 2pm – 4pm on Monday 10th of June at 1 Principal Place, Worship Street, London will include key speakers from the worlds of industry and media.

Confidence is often a reason women and other underrepresented groups don’t feel empowered to pursue education or carers in technology. The workshop is designed to help attendees develop their skills in presenting and communicating.

Key speakers include Louisa Preston, a BBC presenter, and Luisa Baldini, a former BBC News correspondent. The IoC’s partner, Amazon Web Services, are hosting the workshop.

Rachid Hourizi, Director of the Institute of Coding, said:

“This workshop is a fantastic opportunity for those about to enter the digital sector to improve their confidence, skills and connections and hear from key industry speakers. We’re thrilled to be hosting such an important event at London Tech Week and hope to see a great turnout from the next generation of technology champions.”
