‘Apps for Good is an award-winning course where young people learn to create imaginative mobile apps that change their world. Students create apps that make a difference and solve real life issues that matter to them and their community, giving them a launchpad in social enterprise and the exciting world of technology, design and innovation. Apps for Good can be delivered either within the curriculum or as an after school club. While learning technical skills is valuable, this is this is much more than just “teaching kids to code”. Apps for Good is no ordinary course and doesn’t just “teach a subject”. It helps students ready themselves for employment, self-employment and entrepreneurship in the real world. Apps that are successfully designed and prototyped may be selected for professional build via our annual Apps for Good National Competition.
