IJYI are delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring the Suffolk EdTech Conference in November.
The Suffolk EdTech Conference is a one-day Educational Technology Conference hosted by the Creative Computing Club Team, featuring internationally renowned education and technology speakers and workshops. The event is for teachers, business, parents and young people and will have something for everyone to get involved in.
The goal is to highlight the possible technology job opportunities for young people in Suffolk.
All of the profits will go to maintaining the work the Creative Computing Club does in Ipswich, Suffolk. Since 2012 the Creative Computing Club CIC has worked with several thousand young people across Suffolk, helping them to engage in worthwhile and inspiring technology-based activities. Through its informal and non-competitive environment, it has allowed them to gain confidence and qualifications in areas that interest them the most while being relevant to today’s tech sector needs.
