Apps for Good

Apps for Good is an education technology charity, with a mission to unlock the confidence and talent of young people to help them thrive in a tech-driven future.

They provide free online CPD to upskill computing teachers to ensure they feel confident delivering their programmes (App Development or Internet of Things course) to their students. Students are then challenged to come up with any problem or issue they are passionate about within their communities and learn how to solve it by building a digital product.

Through the Apps for Good programme students learn not just vital technical skill but also the enterprise and employability skills to design, market, launch and pitch their products solving real-world problems.
