Generation Code addresses the lack of computer science skills in young people, empowering them to become digital creators in an ever-changing global society. Run in partnership with Microsoft, our national programme provides coding opportunities to 11-19 year olds to inspire them to create and explore the digital world.

The programme is led alongside Code Champions aged 16-25 with no previous coding experience. The Code Champions are trained to take the lead on delivering regular coding activities to younger people in their area. Using Micro:bit technology, Generation Code brings coding to life as young people are supported to make all sorts of creations, from robots to musical instruments.
