We have applied for grant funding to create an initial team of 10 “digital ambassadors” for Leeds trained to enthuse school students, working non-graduates, undergraduates, and older people to take up jobs involving software development.

Software engineers from Leeds will be trained in presentation and engagement skills, learning a style of delivery most suited to school STEM students and older people. Following and alongside training, the digital ambassadors will engage people via events centred on the Internet of Things (IoT), held in various parts of West Leeds, and organized in partnership with the two most prominent community organisations – Kirkstall Valley Development Trust and BARCA.
