Looking back on year 1 at CodeClan…
Since opening our doors in October 2015, over 150 students have embarked on our 16-week, immersive software development course, providing a new source of exceptional talent to Scottish businesses.
Along the way we’ve established a growing community of forward-thinking employers, launched a suite of new courses and helped increase the proportion of women entering the digital sector. Our curriculum goes from strength to strength, focusing on the skills and technologies sought after in industry, evidenced by the repeat hires that many of our employers make.
We’re on the cusp of a digital revolution!
Big stats for a big year
Our community now consists of over eighty Scottish-based employers and is growing rapidly. They are a diverse group covering both digital services and products. Half are small, with less than 50 staff, and they range from start-ups, through public sector organisations, to large corporations.
Our student placement team, employer speed networking events & CV preparation has given our graduates and employers the best chance of finding the perfect match. 90% of our students were placed into work within 6 months and 50% of those students found jobs within 6 weeks of graduating.
Having proven our value to the industry over the last year in Edinburgh, we are excited to be expanding to Glasgow in 2017.
Combining this with Edinburgh, we’ll train over 250 software developers in our second year.
We’re working hard to promote a digital career as one particularly suited to women and CodeClan ensures a supportive learning environment for all of our students. We’re proud that over a quarter of our students are women and this number is rising steadily.
