How Individuals can get involved

By 2020, it is expected that the UK will have more than 750,000 new ‘digital’ jobs and British businesses will need to train nearly 2.3 million people to meet the demand, therefore individuals can play their part by learning new skills or sharing their expertise.

Why not shout about what you are doing by writing a blog or sharing your story on social media. How did you get into digital? What tips do you have for others?


Don’t forget to share what you are doing with us on social media using the #NationalCodingWeek or tag us in a photo @codingweek

Why not offer your skills to libraries, codeclubs or schools? Simply offering a careers talk to help inspire the next generation or showing some basic digital skills to help get people started may be all that’s required.

1 Support your local hackathon.

2 create some resources to share with the wider world for National Coding Week.

3 offer to run a short course at a local venue (one hour / two hours will be fine).
