We are delighted to announce the first industry partners to join CodeClan Highlands!
Companies joining our partner programme get early access to students studying the Full-Stack Web Development course, before they graduate as part of our unique match-making careers service.
The first Highlands partners to join us are:
- Yellow Cherry Digital
- Lugo IT
- Quarch Technology
- Scottish Natural Heritage
- University of the Highland and the Islands
- Football Pools
All of our partners will be able to access our growing calendar of industry events, make use of our Inverness venue at Wasps Creative Academy on the site of the former Inverness Royal Academy.
Partners will also be the first to provide speakers and mentors for our students during the course, and are eligible to join the advisory groups which help to shape the CodeClan curriculum and ensure every graduate is as valuable and job-ready as possible.
The CodeClan Highlands campus provides industry-led training for a new generation of software and web developers. It will help attract and retain young people in the Highlands, create high-value jobs and ensure businesses across the region have access to skilled people to help innovate and improve their competitiveness.
When the Highlands campus was launched in April, Scotland’s Minister for Public Finance and the Digital Economy, Kate Forbes MSP, said: “I think this is one of the most exciting investments in the Highlands.”
Melinda Matthews-Clarkson, our CEO, said: “CodeClan’s partners are a large part of our success to date. They give us insight into the evolution of their industries, the changing nature of their challenges and how our graduates fit into their corporate culture.
“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome our first dedicated Highlands partners on-board. They demonstrate the incredible diversity and range of sectors and businesses in the region. We can’t wait to introduce them to our students and help them understand the incredible opportunities available throughout the North of Scotland.”
CodeClan’s Highlands campus is run in partnership with Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) as part of the Northern Innovation Hub on behalf of the Inverness and Highland City-Region Deal.
The Hub is a set of carefully targeted projects to strengthen innovation and increase competitiveness among businesses across The Highland Council region.
The partnership was awarded £11 million by the Inverness and Highland City-Region Deal, along with £3 million from the European Regional Development Fund and £2 million from HIE.
