Description/Abstract

A preliminary survey of 680 UK school pupils was conducted in order to get an understanding of how experiences of computing out of school and at school influence the perception of computing careers and future career plans in computing. The study found that pupils perceive themselves in IT careers. This poster will demonstrate how these experiences influence future career choice.
