About TechFuture Girls

TechFuture Girls is an out-of-the-box after-school club that has been specifically designed to encourage girls to stay engaged in IT.

It helps girls develop their tech skills through a series of fun challenges, themed around their interests – like music, sport and dance. Running TechFuture Girls doesn’t need any specialist IT expertise or software, it’s fully curriculum-compliant, and girls love it. It supports girls’ learning in IT and across the curriculum, and benefits their confidence and self-esteem.

Tried, Trusted, Successful

19,000 girls have attended TechFuture Girls clubs in 1500 schools across the UK.

  • 84% of girls involved state they are more likely to consider further education or a career in technology as a result
  • 98% of teachers who run the clubs say that members’ IT confidence levels have improved

“Girls can have a fun club with no boys and no pressure. We play music, some of us dance – everyone helps out each other. We all love it.” TechFuture Girls club facilitator
