About us.

We’re Scotland’s first and only award-winning and industry-led digital skills academy on a mission to help bridge the digital skills gap.

We are a not-for-profit organization that helps people find fulfilling careers in tech. We inspire, educate and empower people to create a successful new career teaching the most in-demand software, data analysis and web development skills.

Our values.


We have a passion for technology and encourage others to pursue their dreams of becoming data analysts or software developers.


When overcoming challenges and common goals, our combined efforts as a group, rather than single individuals, are critical to success.

We are never content with the status quo and constantly seek opportunities to experiment, learn and improve.


What we do and how we do it.

Through our range of digital training courses we’re helping to transform the careers of 100s of professionals across Scotland and delivering a steady pipeline of talent to our growing network of employer partners.

Cutting-edge and industry-relevant training.

The rapidly evolving digital industry impacts almost every sector in Scotland. We take care to understand the skills that are sought by employers across the country and the technologies that are changing businesses every day.

Immersive, hands-on digital courses built for today.

There’s a skills shortage now and we’re not wasting any time. We’re transforming careers in days, weeks and months – not years – through our immersive courses and shorter upskilling courses . 

Working together to build a stronger economy.

Our immersive courses and employer partner programme provide job opportunities for around 400 graduates every year. They’re creating real impact and delivering immediate value to Scotland’s growing digital economy.
