What will you be doing?

Ignite Hubs is an education charity for children and young people aged 7 to 18 years old. Our mission is to ignite the potential of young minds by widening their horizons and providing them with the skills, connections and experiences to access career-related learning opportunities and prepare them for the future workforce. We currently teach coding and STEM. We aim to provide the best learning environment for children and young people from all backgrounds and abilities. We place a special emphasis on engaging underrepresented groups, including girls, children with special educational needs, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. By doing so, we actively work towards narrowing the representation gap in the technology and STEM sectors. We teach over 130 students each week and have positively impacted more than 1,00 children and young people since we started. Our educational offerings include four weekly virtual classes and four weekly in-person classes during term time at various libraries throughout Southwark, SE London. We plan to open at a fifth library in Southwark in April 2024. Our long-term ambition is to offer nationwide classes, workshops and events to children and young people on a wide variety of subjects under our five educational Hubs: Code, STEM, Innovation & Enterprise, Creativity and Health & Wellbeing. We hope you will join our mission to create innovative and engaging Hubs and help us roll them out across the country.
