CC4G in Edinburgh
e-skills UK has announced that the Royal Bank of Scotland Group and City of Edinburgh Council have formed a funding partnership enabling schools across Edinburgh to take advantage its CC4G (Computer Clubs for Girls) initiative. CC4G are out-of-school hours clubs that provide 10 to 14 year old girls with a range of specially-tailored activities designed to teach valuable technology skills while focusing on the girls' areas of interest. Currently, only around 15% per cent of Scotland's IT workforce is female. More than 30 Edinburgh schools attended a launch event hosted by RBS at its Edinburgh headquarters.
