London-based investment management firm, Winton Capital Management, provided £10,000 in scholarship funds for students to attend Fire Tech summer camps. They were on the one hand interested in supporting the students, but equally interested in promoting themselves as an employer to our tutors.
Winton actively seeks to support the latest in technology education and research. Robin Eggar, Winton’s Head of Communications, said: “at Winton we love maths and science. The company has always been committed to actively encouraging research and education as well as engaging the public in how better to understand risk. It is very important for all our futures that young people are given as much opportunity as possible to embrace and engage with computer technology.”
How we helped
Fire Tech worked with schools and local authorities to create a pipeline of candidates for the scholarship programme, and provide scholarships to 30 students to attend our summer camp programmes in coding, making and digital media.
Fire Tech was able to inspire and support 30 students in digital skills who otherwise would not have been able to access our programmes. We also made parents and tutors aware that Winton was providing this support, and position them as an innovative employer hiring engineering and computing graduates.
