AM backs coding for Welsh pupils

By County Echo Reporter in Education

MID and West Wales AM Eluned Morgan has spoken out in support of an innovative Welsh Government drive to increase understanding of coding in Welsh schools.

The Welsh Labour Government have announced significant funding, aimed at giving pupils in Pembrokeshire access to training in the latest technology.

The announcement meets a pledge in last year’s Welsh Labour Manifesto and is more evidence of Welsh Labour acting quickly to meet their promises.

“Having more Code Clubs in schools ‘cracking the code’ means we’re equipping future generations with the skills to help them compete in a global market.

“This is truly 21st century technology and I agree with the Welsh Labour Government that Wales has to be out in front.

“We live in an increasingly digital world and we cannot ignore predictions that there will be 100,000 coding jobs by 2020.

“Like the Welsh Government, I want Wales to host as many of these jobs as possible.”

This week’s County Echo is out in shops now.
