Award from The Blagrave Trust
TechResort has always believed in the skills and capability of young people. We’ve never been disappointed.
The Covid-19 pandemic has tested all of us, and we think young people could well suffer disadvantages well into the future. Many have seen work experience sessions cancelled, and will be facing continued disadvantage for a while yet.
Funding from the Blagrave Trust allowed us to trial work experience placements for young people aged 14 to 18.
We introduced them to ongoing work, including our Donate a device scheme, and getting people online sessions. They also helped us run creative activities with younger children during the summer holidays.
Our students really enjoyed getting involved, and we’re currently looking for more funding to extend this work.
