CodeClan's Emerging Talent Fund.

The CodeClan Emerging Talent Fund offers a unique opportunity to support young adults and under-represented groups by helping them learn the skills needed for a future career in tech.

Together we can make a difference

CodeClan’s Emerging Talent Fund is an initiative to support young people and under-represented groups who are looking to enter the tech industry. Through your support we can help them gain the skills and experience they need to pursue a successful future career.

It is through this fund that we hope to create a more inclusive and welcoming community that will benefit everyone.

Our Emerging Talent Fund is designed to support students who could not otherwise afford our immersive bootcamps, but who have shown great aptitude to learn and succeed on our courses.

“We have an ongoing commitment to getting diverse talent into the ecosystem faster, while helping companies to become more successful, and the research shows how important our industry partnerships are.

Against a backdrop of economic headwinds, and a cost-of-living crisis, existing and planned collaborations and our new Emerging Talent Fund can help to address a challenging environment.”

About the Fund

Our goal is to give everyone a chance at having a successful career in tech

In today’s increasingly digital world, coding skills are essential for any career in tech. 

By sponsoring students in our Emerging Talent Fund, you can help young adults and under-represented groups break into the tech industry and create a brighter future for themselves.

Helping support diverse talent

The Emerging Talent Fund provides students with the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to become successful coders and developers. With our immersive courses and access to career support, students can follow their dreams of becoming software developers and data analysts.

Paying it forward for future generations

By paying it forward individuals, businesses and organisations can pay towards the cost of someone’s learning at CodeClan.

This helps people access our digital courses regardless of their financial constraints and it’s an opportunity for supporters to give back to their community.

CodeClan's Emerging Talent Fund was started out of recognition that there is a shortage of women, LGBTQ, and people belonging to under-represented ethnic groups in tech.

What We Offer

Talent is everywhere, opportunity is not. At CodeClan we believe that everybody deserves a chance at a life of learning and a top career.

At CodeClan, we’re creating a diverse group of future leaders by building an outstanding alternative to university. 

We are committed to increasing diversity in the tech sector by providing a range of initiatives and resources to help promote and support diverse talent. We provide a safe, inclusive environment for all learners and actively promote job opportunities to ensure all learners have the opportunity to succeed.

“We have an ongoing commitment to getting diverse talent into the ecosystem faster.”
