Encourage Social Mobility
Unicode provides an opportunity for students of all backgrounds to compete on a level playing field and showcase their ability. Whether it’s the Open University or Cambridge, the winner of each fixture, league and competition will be decided on coding ability. We hope that this can be a platform for change, helping the shift away from screening candidates by university and academic attainment, and toward a fairer system where candidates are screened and hired based on their ability. Will Sunderland finish ahead of Cambridge? Will Coventry Uni beat Oxford?
