At CodeClan, we are passionate about teaching digital skills including software development and user experience design. We believe that promoting digital excellence creates opportunities for our students, our graduates, our employer partners and the wider economy.
We play a leading role in accelerating Scotland’s progress in building a high-performing digital economy. To do this, we challenge convention in everything we do – from what and how we teach to the way we communicate with our staff, students and employer partners.
We’ve got the support of The Scottish Government, Scotland’s digital technologies trade body, ScotlandIS, and Skills Development Scotland. And we’re the first UK digital skills academy to be approved by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).

Life on the 16 Week Course
Our immersive style of teaching, our dedication to being the best and the intensive nature of the 16-week programming course make for a challenging but rewarding learning environment. You’ll work hard. You’ll learn. You'll have fun!
The only way we can produce the best job-ready junior developers is if we have the best team of people teaching, supporting and inspiring them. Our people represent different backgrounds and experiences, but all share a passion for technology and are highly motivated to give our students the finest experience in learning life-changing skills.
Hear from people who have experienced first-hand what it's like to be a student at CodeClan:
“Overall I had a really great experience during my time at CodeClan, although it went by far too quickly and I could have easily stayed a couple more weeks. I now have a job as a junior developer with a tech start-up based in Edinburgh – we are still in stealth mode so I can’t reveal too much. I help fix bugs and focus mainly on testing at the moment. I also generally help out wherever I can be of use!”
Cohort E7 graduate
“I was the only one in our cohort with young children and I was worried how it would work out, given the intensity of the course and the homework and projects. I had to head off to get the kids from nursery and then couldn’t start my homework until they were tucked up in bed, but I enjoyed the work so much it never felt like a chore.
Cohort E6 graduate
“There are other ways of learning to code, but I feel CodeClan offers a structured way of learning and gives support. I enjoyed all the coding and homework, but the best thing was the people. The instructors gave guidance and support and the fellow cohort students were great too; it was a good environment with everyone working on similar tasks. Most recently I’ve been working as a developer at FireFish software.”
