Meet five CodeClan Glasgow instructors

The Duke of Wellington status in Glasgow's George Square, close to where CodeClan is located. The statue is of a bronze and rider, both of which have orange traffic cones placed on their heads.

Since 2017, CodeClan Glasgow has been changing the lives and careers of hundreds of our students, through our Professional Software Development course. Meet five of our Glasgow instructors who help drive that success…

Ally – Head of PSD delivery

“After a varied career working in the tech and training industries for over 15 years, I joined CodeClan in 2016 as an Instructor when the Glasgow campus was opened.

“As long as you have a passion for tech and can demonstrate that, it will lead to a very rewarding career.”

Jen – Cohort Lead

“I’ve got 20 years of experience coding. I’ve been in the Professional Software Development instructor team for 2 years now. Prior to CodeClan I was working in the NHS for 7 years helping staff learn how to roster and to implement, test and design an eRostering system.”

“My favourite part of the job is helping people achieve their career goals.”

Ash – Technical Assistant

“Hi pals, I’m Ash. I work in the Glasgow CodeClan Campus. I like coding because it’s like solving a bunch of little puzzles to make something bigger.

Usually this is something practical but I like to make random generators.”

Aqib – Technical Assistant

“I have a background primarily in UI/UX and User Research.

I’m currently a TA helping on the Professional Software Development course whilst also expanding my knowledge and skills in Data Science, specifically in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

I’m also an avid enthusiast of Robotics and all things Python.”

Steve – Senior Instructor

“I worked in hardware design (PCBs and chip layout) for around 15 years before joining CodeClan as a student.

I had such a great time that after working in industry for a time I returned as an instructor.

I particularly enjoy building games and web apps.”
