Embrace your digital knowledge at city bank

Have your say

CHILDREN and adults are being invited to embrace their digital skills by learning more about coding online.

Code Playground has been launched by Barclays Bank.

The initiative gives customers and non-customers alike the opportunity to learn about coding online or in branch.

Parents and grandparents are encouraged to participate in order to bridge the divide between the generations’ digital know-how. One of the events takes place at the Commercial Road branch in Portsmouth on Saturday from 10am to midday.

Barclays community leader Donna Hagan said: ‘The purpose of our Digital Eagles is simple – to work in local communities to give people the opportunity to learn and embrace digital skills, from sending an email, skyping family or learning how to bank online.

‘Since 2013, more than 12,000 Digital Eagles have helped thousands of people of all ages to get more out of being online, but we don’t want to stop there.’
