Working in partnership with local schools

Here at Texthelp we’re passionate about education and technology so we were delighted to be able to work in partnership with one local school to help teach the pupils there a thing or two about software engineering.

Monday 7th December 2015 saw schools and educators celebrate the Hour of Code, encouraging students to take up computer science. 
St Benedict’s College in Randalstown, County Antrim share our love of technology and were keen to get their kids involved in coding. As part of their Young Enterprise initiative they were eager to create an app to store recipes for the tasty treats they’d be selling. 
That’s where we stepped in. We sent some of our finest developers to teach the pupils a thing or two about app development… Not only did the master class help to diversify the ICT skills of the students but it also shone a light on a potential new career path in a burgeoning industry with lots of opportunities.
