CodeClan has been praised for helping to meet the talent needs of the country’s dynamic tech sector by the Deputy First Minister John Swinney as it celebrates its second birthday. 

A total of 200 CodeClan graduates have now secured technology related jobs on completion of their courses and, to meet demand, the academy has unveiled plans to double its course numbers in the year ahead.

Mr Swinney said: “Digital skills are playing an increasingly important role in almost all business sectors. Being able to provide a technologically savvy workforce will be crucial for Scotland in the years ahead and CodeClan is playing an influential role in helping us to achieve this."

Skills Development Scotland was a founding and funding partner of CodecClan. Chairman John F McClelland CBE said: “CodeClan’s success shows how SDS and partners can work with industry to react quickly to meet the skills needs of employers. A digital skills academy was one of the key actions identified by our Digital Technologies Skills Investment Plan, developed with industry backing in 2014, with CodeClan opening the following year.”
