This week we had our first 2018/19 Go_Girl session – a Meet and Greet for our new cohort of young women. Staff members had an opportunity to introduce themselves and share a bit about their personal journeys and our new Go_Girls shared some of their goals and interests with us. Some are keen to develop web design skills building on previous experiences gained in courses on HTML and CSS from Code Academy. Others are interested in photography and creating apps to make life easier while also working to get GCSEs and progress to A-levels. It was a real pleasure getting to know the young women and we are looking forward to working with them and helping them to create their desired projects and plan pathways for transition into education, employment, training or volunteer work.
