What is Technocamps?
Technocamps is a wide-reaching digital programme. Our main goal is to support digital upskilling across Wales through our strong partnerships with all Welsh universities. Our programmes are all free to the recipient, as they are fully-funded by the Welsh Government and HEFCW. They are facilitated by the commitment of Welsh universities working collaboratively.
In the classroom:
Our ultimate goal is increasing young people’s engagement with STEM subjects. We work with secondary schools through our STEM Enrichment programme and primary schools through our Playground Computing programme. We also provide training and professional development for teachers to prepare them for the challenges of delivering in a technical and dynamic environment.
Beyond the classroom:
Our commitment to computing education extends beyond the school environment. We provide digital upskilling opportunities to people in employment and opportunities for lifelong learning. Our fully-funded Degree Apprenticeship programme offers the chance to ‘earn and learn’ by working towards a degree while in full-time employment. We also work with businesses and industry to create opportunities to ensure the digital pipeline is generated locally, helping to provide high quality jobs and support the Welsh economy.
