A total of 200 graduates from CodeClan have secured technology-related jobs in the two years since the digital training academy opened its doors.

And as the academy unveiled plans to double its course numbers in Glasgow in the year ahead, it was praised by deputy first minister John Swinney for its role in supplying new talent to support the country’s burgeoning tech sector.

CodeClan plans to double its intake in Glasgow in 2018 from three cohorts to six, with a further nine in Edinburgh; this will produce 320 job ready people during 2018, with 120 in Glasgow.
