What is the Creative Computing Club?
Since 2012 the Creative Computing Club CIC has worked with several thousand young people across Suffolk, helping them to engage in worthwhile and inspiring technology-based activities. Through its informal and non-competitive environment, it has allowed them to gain confidence and qualifications in areas that interest them the most while being relevant to today's tech sector needs.
The Creative Computing Club is a Community Interest Company. The
positive the impact we have on young peoples lives, the educational and social
opportunities we provide them are of more importance to us than generating a profit.
Our ethos is simple, 50% work 50% play and this approach has allowed us to
become a nationally recognised multiaward winning organisation with excellent
outcomes for the young people we teach in Suffolk.
Our vision is to be at the forefront of technology focussed education that delivers an exceptional learning experience to all our young people. We aim to deliver engaging and effective teaching based on our core values and the best, most up-to-date technological practices which enable young people attending our courses to achieve their academic ambitions and lifetime careers. We are determined to make a positive difference to the future of our young people and their families, the careers of our staff, as well as contributing to the broader community.
We value Dedication, Curiosity and Courage and our educational principles are
focussed on fostering self-confidence and a sense of responsibility.
All our young people are entitled to a high-quality education, grounded in centred on individual goals in a positive and nurturing environment.
We promote exceptional teaching and learning. We recognise and celebrate academic excellence and achievement. We aim to provide innovative teaching informed by research and effective practice. We embrace the use of technology to improve the quality of teaching and learning and we aim to contribute to the lifelong education of individuals.
We also have a lot of fun.
