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. They represent different backgrounds and experiences, but all share a passion for technology and giving our students the finest experience in learning to code. Below are some of our key players.

Hear from people who have experienced first-hand what it's like to be a student at CodeClan:
“CodeClan has been a life changing experience for me. The staff and Instructors were exceptional, they don’t just teach, they mentor, tutor and coach you.16 weeks seems quite short but I can’t even explain the transformation that has happened. I’m proud I was part of the pioneering cohort and really excited to be starting my new job as a junior developer.”
Cohort 1 graduate
“I’m new to coding so the immersive nature of the course really appealed to me. There are four instructors in our class which means help is never far away. If you’ve never written a line of code before, it doesn’t matter. They have helped me understand by giving me feedback on my homework and encouraging me to overcome stumbling blocks. I’m confident that it’s going to “click”. Much of it already has.”
Cohort 2 student
“So far CodeClan has been great! My classmates are friendly, the facilities are excellent and the instructors are passionate and able to explain things in basic terms which is great for a self-proclaimed ‘IT/ coding novice’ like myself. I’m really enjoying learning the material and have already surprised myself with the extent of what I’ve learnt and what I’m now able to do!”
