AWS GetIT – fully funded programme for First Year students


Kingswood Community College are excited to share that we will be taking part in the fully funded AWS GetIT
2020-21 programme, delivered by Amazon Web Services in partnership with Future Foundations.


AWS GetIT aims to encourage girls to consider a career in tech and to challenge gender
stereotypes within the industry. Our First year students will be designing an app that makes real, tangible social change within the school
or local community.


An AWS ambassador will be involved with the school at different points throughout the year, to
guide the students through the programme and provide useful tips for designing their apps. At
the end of the year, selected app ideas will be entered into a competition against teams from
other schools across the country.


The AWS team is factoring in Government guidelines and social distancing to ensure that the
programme is run as safely as possible, with plans to deliver some of the content virtually. The
priority is to make sure students can still take part and get the most out of the programme while
staying safe.
