Although I preferred the C64 for programming, I did enjoy programming the BBC Micro and got a top grade for a school project for which I wrote a database system in BASIC, complete with search and editing features. I also wrote the odd scientific program on the BBC. I never went on to make a living in IT though, it was never what I wanted to do for a career, though I still code a lot (but not on the BBC anymore, though I played on an emulator recently!). I code mostly for fun, but sometimes I write apps for other people. So I guess whether or not these schemes encourage people into the IT industry, software development is a useful and fun skill to have nevertheless.
