As well as exploring the basics of Javascript, participants will also get the opportunity to find out more about what it’s like working in a digital role in government, and using their skills to make an impact on society.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) digital services are accessed by more than 20 million people each year at all stages of their lives.

Nicola Platts, head of talent marketing at DWP Digital said: “It’s widely acknowledged that women are underrepresented in the tech industry.

“In DWP Digital, we’re passionate about closing this gender skills gap as we believe that a diverse balanced workforce leads to more creativity and innovation.

“So we’re excited about this partnership with CodeFirstGirls to help encourage those who identify as women and non-binary into considering a future career within tech.”
