TechPathways London: Free Courses For Teachers
London Connected Learning Centre (CLC) is pleased to announce the launch of its new, free professional development programme for teachers and educators created as part of the Mayor of London’s Digital Talent Programme.
TechPathways London aims to bridge the digital skills gap between education and the 21st-century jobs market. We help educators of 11-24 year olds support their young people in developing the digital skills they need to succeed in the modern workforce.
Training is delivered either online, at our centre in Clapham Old Town, or at one of our industry partner locations. Alternatively, send us an email and we can discuss running sessions in your school or venue (minimum 20 attendees). The CLC team is happy to tailor courses. For more information contact: Caitlin McMillan.
