Becky Patel

Education Consultant, Tech She Can Charter

Amy is a primary and secondary school teacher with over 10 years experience in the classroom. She works with the Tech She Can Charter to create their Tech We Can lesson plans and resources. Their resources aim to encourage students to consider a future career in technology.

Technology is set to influence every aspect of our lives; we need to ensure that the people creating our technology solutions are representative of the population and that there is an equal opportunity to take part in the jobs of the future. The Tech We Can lesson plans have been created to help address the gender imbalance that is seen at a recruitment level and in industry for technology careers by the signatories behind The Tech She Can Charter. The lesson plans are completely FREE for schools and are designed for both boys and girls.

They also have Tech Tuesday webcasts and challenges available for teachers to play at school or students and parents to watch at home
