Promoting digital skills and diverse careers to students, teachers and young people.

TeenTech runs lively and inclusive initiatives with a supporting Award scheme to help teachers, parents, carers and young people see the wide range of career possibilities in Technology, Science and Engineering.

Its work builds confidence and understanding of what a Career in Digital, Data and Technology might look like and the skills students need for the future workplace.

Their initiatives inspire tomorrow's innovators by giving students and young people a real insight into the industries of the future and the skills they need to take advantage of them.

DCMS Secretary of State Matt Hancock recently visited the TeenTech City of Tomorrow event at the Emirates Stadium.

The event saw hundreds of students, and their teachers, engaging with technology and learning about the diverse pathways available to them.

"We need our young people to see technology and related applied sciences as a future not which they might just benefit from but which they can help create."

Maggie Philbin OBE, TeenTech CEO

TeenTech works face to face with young people every year and schools are reporting significant shifts in uptake of STEM subjects as a direct result.
