mTech.Academy report reveals significant impact in education

  • MTech.Academy has revealed a report card of statistics from its first year of operation, highlighting the significant impact that it's had on the 300 students who went through the scheme.

    Tech education startup mTech.Academy recently announced plans to double the size of the scheme following a successful first year, and today at Digital DNA we learned just how successful that year has been. Over 91% of those who participated in the scheme agreed that it has given them a better understanding of the future world of work they'll be entering and the tech opportunities available to them.

    Around 90% of students said they would recommend the scheme to others, and 77% indicated that they would like to see the mTech style of problem-based learning more in schools. Following the scheme, 78% of students said that they were now considering a career in a STEAM field or business and 64% agreed that the scheme significantly influenced their thinking when it came to careers.

    Even more striking were the statistics on teacher engagement, with 100% of all head teachers and middle leaders recommending the scheme and that they would like to see more problem-based learning methods in their schools. A whopping 96% of teachers surveyed said that working with mTech helped them do their jobs. 

    Before their children entered into the scheme, only 62% of parents involved would have encouraged their children to pursue a career in a STEAM field or business. This jumped to 100% by the end of the scheme, with 97% of parents agreeing that they would recommend the scheme to other parents.
