Our mission

TechResort shares digital skills to make the UK more resilient, equal and fun

 

We were founded in 2013 and have come a long way since then. Many of our projects are based in our home town of Eastbourne, but we’re now doing a lot more across the UK. The need for digital skills is universal.

As a Community Interest Company, our profits and assets are used solely for the public good.

Our board of directors come from different parts of creative and digital industries. Most of the people who work for us volunteer, and everyone at TechResort is in it to do good.

We’ve completed countless projects over the last seven years, and you can see the highlights here.

How we help

  • contributing to local, regional and national discussions on the subject of digital skills shortages and how to address them
  • working with schools, colleges and employers to link tech education to local skills needs
  • running hands-on workshops for people of all ages to enthuse them about the possibilities that creative and digital skills have to offer
  • helping with skills development for teachers, community volunteers, public sector staff and businesses
  • lending our skills and equipment to develop the practice of local artists who want to use more digital assets in their work
  • helping local entrepreneurs realise their designs and inventions with specialist help
  • directly employing local young people, helping them develop both technical and soft skills for their future employment
  • offering adults flexible work to accommodate health and other needs, to help them build their work

  • animation
  • app development
  • block-based coding languages
  • digital music
  • electronics
  • games programming
  • microcontrollers
  • photography
