5 steps to starting a new career in tech by the Autumn

Whatever your current employment situation, you could be launching a brand-new career by Autumn 2017.

Thanks to our 16-week intensive programming courses in Edinburgh and Glasgow, you have an opportunity to immerse yourself in a challenging training environment, get introduced to some of the most exciting and innovative companies in Scotland’s tech industry and kick-start a career you love.

From project managers to UX analysts, software consultants to testers, careers in digital are as varied as our students.

With 90% of our students going into employment within five months of graduating (over 70% of those within three months) with members of our 120+ strong employer community, there’s a chance you could be in a new role before the end of the year.

Here’s a timeline for achieving that goal

1. Get your application in for Cohort 14

Cohort 14 starts on Monday 26th June in Edinburgh – we have one place left on the course and we’ve extended the deadline to midnight on Tuesday 6th June.

If your application is successful, you’ll be invited to our Edinburgh campus for an interview.

We recently answered the 10 most-asked questions other students have about the course and covered them in a Facebook Live:

2. Brush up on your terminology

You’ll start on your three-week pre-course work ASAP – if accepted on the course you’ll get cracking with the first phase of training at home.

3. Begin your course

Start your on-site training at CodeClan – during your 16-weeks you’ll immerse yourself in the technologies and approaches used by digital businesses.

4. Start preparing for your new job

Based on our current statistics, you could be in a brand new job within weeks of graduating. During the course we’ll help you brush up your CV and interview skills, and you’ll meet potential employers at speed networking sessions, Friday employer sessions and site visits.

5. Graduation time!

Cohort 14 graduates on 13th October 2017.

You’ll have learned an immense amount about tools, technologies and techniques used in software development. You’ll have completed four projects, met employers face-to-face and will be ready for your first interviews.
