#techmums’ History

Our first #techmums pilot took place in 2012, and it proved to be a huge success. Research found that not only was there a huge confidence boost in our mums’ ability to use technology, there was also a significant increase in their more general personal confidence.

In fact, the headmaster of that first pilot school, Nick Soar, said that alongside boosting our mums’ confidence, there was a marked difference observed in their children as well.

Since that first pilot, #techmums has been applauded by the likes of Martha Lane Fox and the Shadow Digital Minister for the work we do in encouraging more women into the tech industry.

#techmums Today

Our #techmums students often come to us with little, to no technical knowledge. Over the five week guided course, we build their confidence, tackling a different aspect of technology through classroom based workshops.

From basic IT skills, to online safety, to programming and app design the course is designed to give a taste of what technology today can do for them.

Kids love it, that their mums have had a go at designing an app!

At the end of the five weeks, each mum gets a graduation certificate. Hitting grading criteria isn’t our focus – instead, we celebrate the overall achievement of gaining confidence in using technology.
