Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, has unveiled a new initiative designed to help encourage more young people into digital careers. The company, in conjunction with The Tech Partnership and MyKindaCrowd, has created a resource pack to help teachers educate young people about possible roles in the IT industry, and the steps they need to take to achieve that ambition. Currently, there are no teaching resource packs of this kind available for this topic.
The TechFutures Teachers, a Careers Resources Pack has been developed based on the findings of a research project conducted by MyKindaCrowd. The research, which assessed the challenges and issues that schools currently face when teaching pupils about careers in IT, found that although young people are well-versed in using technology, there is a lack of knowledge of how that technology is created and little understanding of the breadth of technology career opportunities available.
