BBO Game Changer Programme - Software Cornwall

Software Cornwall is the delivery partner for The Real Ideas Organisation’s (RIO) Building Better Opportunities (BBO) ‘Game Changer’ programme for Cornwall’s digital sector. It aims to work with young people aged 15-24 who are at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training) across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It will support young people to overcome the complex challenges they face; understand their individual aptitudes, passions and interests; develop skills and experiences; build connectivity and networks, resulting in at least 55% of them moving into work or long-term learning.

The programme will be delivered by working with businesses, matching their needs and aspirations with the passions and skills of young people. From experiencing potential careers via sector based work placements to challenge based learning sessions where young people can grow and express themselves openly and explore opportunities, young people on the programme will receive support tailored to their needs.

Game Changer aims to give young people the freedom to explore and view their future from a different perspective and experience a broad range of career opportunities. RIO is leading Game Changer, with a partnership of 13 delivery organisations, all of whom will provide the opportunity for young people to achieve a brighter future for themselves and be part of an inclusive and growing Cornish economy.
