Jam Coding is delighted to be a finalist in the QFA’s Virtual Franchising Awards. Sponsored by Barclays, the awards celebrate innovation, achievement and excellence within the franchising sector.

Founded in 2014 by teacher and digital professional Roger Grogan, Jam Coding delivers computing and coding programmes that help children and young people engage in the computing curriculum. 

Roger commented, “We believe every child deserves the chance to unlock their innate, unlimited capacity to learn. Not just where we’re based in Lancashire, but nationwide.

Through our franchising program, children across the UK can access the tools they need to develop vital computing skills. Whether or not they choose coding as a career, these skills will help them throughout the course of their lives.

We see digital skills as life skills and we also, unfortunately, see a widening digital divide. We are seeking to address this at key ages and are very proud to be recognised for that.”

The awards, which are conducted virtually using technology to select and present the winners, received 175 nominations.

Jam Coding was shortlisted to win the ‘best technology and innovation’ category alongside Just Cuts, Swim Time, Busy Lizzy, Magikats, Franchise Resales, Really Awesome Coffee and Pass The Keys.

Other categories include: marketing excellence, best franchise support, best franchising supplier, new franchisor of the year, best adaption to change, franchise of the year and franchisor of the year.

What happens next?

Now, we wait! The shortlisted applicants will be reviewed by a judging panel who will then vote for the franchise they believe should win. The winners will be announced on 29th January 2021 until then its back to teaching the future….
