SPT has become an employer partner of CodeClan, Scotland’s first digital skills academy which aims to promote digital excellence and create opportunities for students, graduates, employer partners and the wider economy.
As an employer partner, it means SPT will now have access to skilled and highly motivated developers who have completed CodeClan’s rigorous training and are now ready to take on the challenges of a real-life work environment.
Supported by the Scottish Government, Scotland’s digital technologies trade body – ScotlandIS, and Skills Development Scotland, CodeClan is the first digital skills academy to be approved by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).
CodeClan is a dedicated resource designed to help to close Scotland’s digital skills gap, offering employers instant access to a steady flow of new programming talent. Everyone signed up to the programme undergoes four months of immersive and challenging training before being considered job-ready.
Head of Digital Dominic McManus explained:
“By working in partnership with CodeClan, we will now be able to access the best talent there is working in digital in Scotland. This is of huge benefit to us and ensures we will be able to continue to deliver cutting edge digital solutions across the organisation.”
