  • “The course has definitely changed my life for the better. Before I had no real direction in my work life. I knew I was capable of so much more but had no route to advance. CodeClan opened the door into the industry, gave me the knowledge to earn a role and introduced me to employers looking for people just like me.”

    Shelf-stacker to Test Analyst
  • “I didn’t hate my previous job but I didn’t have any passion for the industry and wasn’t feeling at all challenged or motivated. Now I have a whole range of new skills and as well as having a job I enjoy doing, I can create things in my spare time for fun. I’ve also got a great new group of friends in Edinburgh and some great mentors to call on for help.”

  • “I’m now working for a software company and learning from some extremely competent individuals. I couldn’t have had a better start with a nicer set of skills to be learned. I often smile on my way to/from work. Other things have changed as well but I think that is by far the most important.”
