Tech North, the government funded initiative, has partnered with Liverpool Girl Geeks to provide free coding courses. The partnership is part of a wider move to encourage diversity within the tech sector.
The course will teach women how to build an app, website, or game, using a number of commonly used coding languages across the industry.
“There are so many girls in Liverpool interested in tech” says Rebecca Jones, co-founder of Liverpool Girl Geeks. “They just don’t know what careers there are available to them or where to start, so that’s where we come in. when we launched Get Your Head Around Code as a fully-funded session it booked up incredibly fast”.
“We offered 30 places for Jan, Feb and March and they went in less than a week which is extremely exciting for the city and shows the demand for this type of activity.”
