Software Cornwall

Tony Edwards is one half of the Software Cornwall Education Outreach team, where he helps inspire the next generation of budding developers to follow their digital dreams and enter the broader software industry.

Software Cornwall is a not for profit member network which connects over 80 digital businesses across the county. In 2017, the organisation ramped up their education offering after receiving funding from the Careers Enterprise Company, European Union and Big Lottery.

Being fully funded at the point of delivery has allowed Software Cornwall to visit nearly every secondary school in the county, support code clubs, provide work experience opportunities to college students, mentor startups and university students and help NEET young adults into fulfilling careers.
