Google will join forces with English charity Teach Now to promote ICT education in the UK.
The web giant will team up with the charity to fund over 100 ICT and science teachers in low income communities.
The team up hopes to address the UK's need for ICT teachers by training 34 teachers a year over the next three years. According to the BBC, the partnership will also provide teachers with Raspberry Pi and Arduino teaching kits.
"Science transforms our understanding of the world, and gives us the building blocks to transform our lives," said Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt.
"We recognise there's a severe shortage in the UK of people equipped to teach computer science. So, we've joined forces with Teach First to help train and support more than 100 first rate science and computer science teachers over the next three years."
Teach First hopes to increase the number of ICT educated students in the UK. By partnering with Google, Teach First plans to educate 102 teachers over the next three years who will use their education to work with underprivileged UK youth.
As part of the partnership, Google will also buy Raspberry Pi and Arduino teaching kits to train students in the art of computer science. Raspberry Pi is a low cost credit card sized computer that was developed in hopes of teaching school children about computer programming.
The news comes following increased pressure on the government to revamp its ICT curriculum.
According to a study from late last year, the number of school children opting to take ICT classes has been cut in half since 2006. Google itself reported problems finding enough skilled ICT workers to fill its European headquarters in Ireland last year.
