Samsung’s Digital Classroom intends to enhance Prince’s Trust programmes running at the Kennington Centre and aims to improve young people’s exposure to the latest digital technology, helping them to advance in school and also in the future job market. This is part of a wider strategic aim at The Prince’s Trust to embed digital and STEM skills across its programmes.
A suite of Samsung technology will be provided along with teacher training, connectivity and maintenance support to the centre. This enables not only creative teacher–led learning but also increased peer-to-peer interaction through device mobility.
The partnership will enable the most disadvantaged young people to develop essential technological skills and also boost their confidence.
Martina Milburn CBE, Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust, said: “Samsung has been a very close partner over the last two years and this is another step towards our goal of embedding digital and STEM skills across all of our programmes.”
Andy Griffiths, President of Samsung UK, said: “We strongly believe that technology has the ability to change people’s lives and we are fully committed to helping young people unlock their learning potential through technology. The partnership with The Princes Trust, as well as our other Digital Classroom initiatives, is testament to this commitment.”
