SAP NEWSBYTE — As part of its commitment to help build the next generation of talent for digital enterprises, SAP has announced a new collaboration with Apps for Good to deliver coding education to primary school teachers.
On Thursday 15th October, representatives from SAP and long-standing SAP partner, Apps for Good, met with Minister of State for Schools, Nick Gibb, to discuss the launch of the new collaboration which aims to deliver coding education to primary school teachers. The meeting coincided with EU Code Week (10 – 18 October) at which SAP hosted more than 120 local events as part of the initiative.
Nick Gibb, Minister of State for Schools, commented: “Computing and coding are vital skills for our modern economy, which is why we redesigned the national curriculum to ensure England’s education system is a world leader in teaching computer science.
“This valuable initiative will complement the new computing curriculum – providing support for teachers to develop their own knowledge in computer coding.”
