An exciting new programme to support young people from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds to access digital opportunities, has been launched by BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.

The programme has received a financial boost with support from global advertising technology leader, The Trade Desk, which also hosted a launch event in London.

The My Digital Future programme aims to tackle digital inequality by providing one-to-one support, resources and bursary-funded training to young people who wish to pursue a career in technology.

The scheme also provides opportunities for established IT professionals to volunteer as coaches to support young people going through the programme.
