With the first phase of the Code4000 project coming to an end, we believe we have demonstrated an effective model for the training and resettlement of offenders. Our work helps bridge the uk's tech skills gap, and our ongoing graduate support helps our students find their feet upon release. We believe there is only one direction for us; to setup in more prisons and bring our unique brand of changing lives to more of the UK's prison population.
By the end of 2020, we will have opened our first academy in the south of England, at HMP Wandsworth; by the spring of 2021, we will have taken our first steps into women's prisons at HMP New Hall. Our curriculum continues to expand, as does the offer of support we make to every Code4000 student. More and more employers are beginning to realise the numerous and broad reaching advantages of employing ex-offenders and are reaching out to us to offer employment and training opportunities. Our ongoing mission to change lives through teaching tech is gathering momentum!
code4000 are a small, efficient organisation with running costs of £200,000 a year, for which we provide a growing curriculum, pastoral support, and our through the gate service guiding graduates into work and training upon release. If you can support code4000 financially and help us achieve our goal of a coding academy in every UK prison, please see our contribute page.
