UK IT Challenge

Neoskill are pleased to be invited, again this year, as one of the sponsors for the UK IT Challenge. This is a great initiative spearheaded by the leading UK charity, Shaw Trust and hosted by BT at Adastral Park, Ipswich.

The UK IT Challenge invites talented young people with disabilities to take part in IT challenges:  a team of winners selected from this 3 day event will go on to represent UK on the global stage in the ‘Global IT Challenge’.

Last year was the first time the UK IT Challenge took place and Neoskill was one of the sponsors awarding prizes to winners of some of the challenges. It was a pleasure to be part of this initiative as it was a way of ‘giving back’ to the wider community. The event was also an opportunity for Neoskill to recognise the talents of young disabled individuals who were full of enthusiasm and showed great skills in IT: individuals that are not always given the best opportunities to excel in life. Many expressed how this event focussed on their talents, which unfortunately, are often overlooked by their disabilities.

In organising the UK IT Challenge for Disabled Young People, the Shaw Trust are making a marked contribution to reducing the ‘digital disability divide’ and helping to create an inclusive world where no-one is left behind. Last year’s event was a huge success and the UK team went on to achieve awards at the Global IT Challenge.

Neoskill are looking forward to this year’s event, which we are sure will be an emotional but uplifting experience.
