CodeClan Launches Career Changing Training In Aberdeen

15th September 2020

In partnership with Thorpe Molloy McCulloch Recruitment, CodeClan brings its most popular course, the Professional Software Development programme, to Aberdeen.

CodeClan is on a mission to bridge the digital skills gap. Scotland's first accredited digital skills academy has operations in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, with over 1,000 students having graduated through their immersive training courses.

The Professional Software Development programme is the first CodeClan programme to launch in Aberdeen and will be delivered as a blend of virtual training with on-site days in Aberdeen. Starting on 2nd November, this training course delivers a solid foundation in key digital skills and will appeal to professionals who are hoping to rapidly reskill, change careers or boost their tech credentials.

Where a business need for software developers has been identified, this programme provides a route to access accredited training for employers, facilitating redeployment and innovation.

The first cohort of Aberdeen students will receive an intensive immersion into the fundamentals of programming in languages including Python, JavaScript and Java; apply learning using industry standard tools, processes and frameworks; develop confidence to become a professional software developer and access careers advice.

In Scotland there is a significant digital skills gap – which could mean a career changing opportunity for professionals who are considering their longer term future or reskilling.

Whether you want to become a software developer or broaden your digital skills the Professional Software Development programme is a great place to start.

CodeClan CEO Melinda Matthews-Clarkson said: "We are tremendously excited to launch our first course in Aberdeen. The Professional Software Development programme is SQA accredited and award winning so students can be assured of the high quality teaching.

"But more important than this, by working in consultation with our industry partners we deliver a course which is constantly evolving, provides applied learning to real life projects and produces effective, job-ready graduates who can deliver immediate value for employers."
