CodeClan, Scotland's first accredited digital skills academy, was established in 2015 to make a real dent in the significant skills shortage in the digital industry in Scotland. This shortage is widely recognised as inhibiting Scotland’s economic development.
We were established by the industry, for the industry and benefited from a grant-in-aid from Scottish government to get us started.
Our aim is to train and upskill a new generation of programmers, delivering high-quality, job-ready, entry-level, developers to the tech industry throughout Scotland.
