Do you know that there are loads of different jobs in the Tech industry and they are actively recruiting young people with SEN, as they can see the huge benefits that these young people bring to the workforce. In this workshop I will be explaining:
the variety of careers that are available in the tech industry (it is not all just about game design- game design alone contains approx 5 different jobs!),
the qualifications employers are looking for and how this can be taught alongside the pressures of other curriculum subjects
Where to go and what to teach to help your young people gain a head start.
Adrian will present practical activities from primary and secondary schools in Gosport, Norfolk and Stoke-on-Trent illustrating how BBC micro:bits are being used as catalysts for exciting cross-curricular STEM projects.
