We have trained thousands of teachers, and engaged hundreds of thousands of young people in our educational programmes, including our network of more than 10,000 Code Clubs all over the world. Our free educational resources are used by millions of people every year. We are also working hard at building our profile and expanding our reach into new audiences of potential digital makers.
