Digital Start Fund opens up careers in development and data


Please note this blog post is more than a year old. If you’re interested in funding your training at CodeClan, please visit our funding page.

We’re delighted to announce that people across Scotland will once again be able to access our range of digital upskilling courses through the Digital Start Fund.

The Digital Start Fund, provided by the Scottish Government and managed by Skills Development Scotland, offers unemployed people and those on low incomes, grants between £1,000 and £8,000 to cover training in software development, cyber security and other digital fields. 

Digital industries offer well-paid careers with long-term security. But gaining those skills through traditional routes, can be time-consuming and costly. We offer students a completely new way to rapidly learn a whole new set of languages and work-skills and help them to find employment within Scotland’s rapidly evolving digital economy.

To find out more about our courses and for information on the application process, visit the courses page of our website.

You can find out more about the Digital Start Fund on the Skills Development Scotland Digital World website.
