NESTA idiscover

We tendered and we got it! -NESTA idiscover

Suklaa have a fantastic network of people that we work with and Claudia Barwell is an example of someone who quite simply makes our lives better. Claudia is a project and events manager extraordinaire, she’s organised, inspiring and a master of charm. (She’s also quite posh.)

Darina (Co-Director of Suklaa) and Claudia recently teamed up and put together a tender for the idiscover Programme Manager post for Nesta (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts). We are very excited to say that we were successful!

The idiscover programme is happening in London and Manchester- over the next two years- and we are working with the London Schools who are all part of The Harris Federation in South East London. idiscover is all about developing the innovative capacity of young people by giving them access to a vast range of experiences produced by dynamic learning providers. The programme will put power into the hands of young people and aims to foster some of the skills essential for innovation such as creativity, self-belief, energy, leadership and risk-taking within the cohort of students.

We’re expecting great things!
