The Bridge in Topsham
BCS Voices is your platform from which to meet, share opinion and create debate around the key IT issues that impact our lives every day. We want to hear your thoughts, opinions and ideas on what making IT good for society looks like and how we can bring these to life. We will focus on the topic of Education. With a shortage of computer science graduates coupled with a lack of understanding with some head teachers, and low employment rates among computing graduates, how can we develop young people and their access to development opportunities within IT? Come along to The Bridge in Topsham on Wednesday 5th April at 7:30pm for an informal discussion around this topic.
