Wednesday 15 August 2018 | 16:34 CET | News
CityFibre pledged its support in tackling the digital skills gap in Scotland by partnering with Digital Xtra Fund as part of a commitment to help young people across the country. The partnership will see CityFibre lend financial support, in turn allowing the fund to boost extracurricular digital technology activities across Scotland such as Stirling High School's Digital Learning Hub in partnership with CodeBase Stirling, The Prince's Trust's PTDigiDay in Glasgow as part of their Achieve Programme, or Angus Young Engineers' CAD/CAM Cafe in Angus.
