College helps to inspire next generation into Computing Science

DTECBorders College is delighted to have recently signed up to the Digital Technology Education Charter (DTEC), which aims to inspire the next generation into the world of tech.

The charter aims to bring together organisations, individuals, and education in Scotland to support and encourage the next generation of computing science at school, and by signing up, the College will be part of the solution to the decline in Computing Science studies throughout secondary schools in Scotland.

By being part of the charter, the College will Join working groups, alongside teachers delivering Computing Science, to brainstorm creative ways to bring the subject to life and demonstrate in the classroom why Computing Science should be a subject of choice.

Borders College Vice Principal Heather Anderson Commented:

“Working together we can create more inspiring, engaging, and exciting opportunities for all pupils. Every pupil should experience how great Computing Science is, with the ultimate goal of seeing the subject thrive in all secondary schools in Scotland.”

The Charter’s aims include:

•    Bring together schools, industry, academia, and other stakeholders to help inspire the next generation into Computing Science.
•    Raise Awareness of the diverse career opportunities available to young people in the Scottish tech sector.
•    Encourage pupils to choose Computing Science where it is available to them as an option.
