A new Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) programme which aims to get school students coding has been awarded £40,000 in funding.

Pathways to Coding, run by QMUL’s Outreach and Widening Participation team, has been allocated the money by The Sutton Trust, a think-tank which aims to improve social mobility through education.

The four year project will start in September 2016 and aims to support eligible* disadvantaged Year 12 and 13 students with a particular interest in coding, with priority given to students who are, or have been, looked after, accommodated or in care.

The programme will constitute a mix of sessions with both an academic and a careers focus, as well as work experience and talks from interesting industry figures and academics.
