Leeds’ popular #techmums clubs are welcoming new recruits for the second round of free courses starting in January 2020
Led by Leeds Libraries and Leeds Employment and Skills, the clubs are back by popular demand, after recently winning a Women in IT Excellence award for most diverse and inclusive digital initiative.
The #techmums clubs are a key part of the Leeds City Council 100% Digital Leeds programme.
For ten weeks, women on the free course explore social media, web and app design, coding, online safety and creative design.
#techmums is for women who are currently outside employment, due to childcare or career breaks, who want to learn new digital skills for day-to-day life or go on to retrain and access further education.
Through the Leeds Libraries tablet lending scheme, women can also borrow iPads during the course to continue learning at home.
