Is a career in tech right for you? Discover your pathway

Many people like the sound of a new career in the digital and tech industries. After all, there’s a lot of buzz around these careers at the moment, and a lot of demand for talent. But without actually being able to try out the job, it’s often difficult to know whether it’s the right choice, let alone which career path within tech to pursue.

At CodeClan, your starting point is our Access to Tech course, where you’ll be exposed to classes about data and software development. After that, you’ll be better informed to choose the pathway that best suits your aspirations. 

Scotland needs more people with software and data skills

Is this you? 
If you are over 25 years old, live in Scotland and haven’t graduated in the last twelve months, the Digital Skills Pipeline funding could offer you a grant to help pay for your training. Part of the Scottish Government’s National Transition Training Fund and managed by Skills Development Scotland (SDS), the Digital Skills Pipeline funding  supports those furthest from the job market to achieve their digital ambitions through specialist training.
