All over the world, work is aided by technology.

In the past decade, the IT skills required to get a job or build a business have steadily but surely become more technical. It is thus important for the 21st Century youth to be equipped with core technical skills like coding, programming which can greatly improve the chances of employability.


Coding is also cool! Most of the fun tools we use today – Smartphones, Websites like Facebook, Apps like Whatsapp were built by programmers. Interacting with computers and computing is such a critical part of how we live today.  On a general level, a knowledge of coding will help you develop other important skills like problem solving and logical thinking skills, which are important for building creative solutions in every area of life.
