Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way.
Digit<all> are key supporters of CodeWeek in the UK.
Learning to code helps us make sense of the rapidly changing world around us. Join millions of fellow organisers and participants across the UK and beyond to inspire the development of coding and computational thinking skills.

digit<all> was founded in 2022 by Peter Marshman, lead of the top performing Computing Hub for the National Centre for Computing Education.
Following years of collaboration and strategic support for schools across the United Kingdom and beyond, the need for engaging and active learning with a focus on technology, coding and data science was clearly evident. Since then, digit<all> has developed partnerships with schools, universities, sports clubs and other charities to increase the well-being of young people and to provide them with the skills and knowledge to become non-sedentary, active and happy learners.
We provide training for teachers and workshops and enrichment camps for young people both in school and in the community. These opportunities are linked to the context of digital roles such as in space, sport and cyber security.
We also generate resources to enable teachers to deliver creative computing content within their curriculum and to engage young people through community and educational workshops. The charity also provides a range of strategic support plans to ensure that schools can receive the necessary mentoring, coaching and training to provide a creative computing curriculum.
