Coding at Cambridge United

As the first team returned to action after their summer break, off the field our Community Trust continued its hard work to positively affect people's lives across Cambridgeshire. On 11 and 12 July, 15 local students took part in a free computer coding course using the IT facilities at our stadium, delivered by Cambridge Coding Academy and supported by Marshall's Charity Fund. The 14- to 19-year-olds learned how to build their own online game, along the way developing skills that will undoubtedly improve their employment prospects in the future.

This project helps to fulfil our Trust's objective of offering non-traditional educational opportunities using the Club's resources, under the key theme of Education. Danny Kerrigan, Community Trust Manager, said: "This project is a brilliant example of our Trust using all of the resources Cambridge United have at their disposal. Most people would associate us with sporting activity, so to highlight the breadth of our work with this classroom-based Coding Weekend is really important. More important, though, are the outcomes for the young people who invested their own time to take part, and we hope the skills they have developed will make a real difference to them going forward."
