SCOTLAND’S digital skills academy CodeClan has partnered with Glasgow City Council to offer free places on its July bootcamp to Glasgow residents, with the 4-week course aimed at helping participants learn skills that will allow them to enter the workforce.  

Places on the digital skills bootcamp are available to anyone aged between 16-24 living in the Glasgow City Council area who is currently unemployed or not in education.  Upon completion of the bootcamp, students will be presented with a SQA accredited certificate and will receive 4-week paid internships.  CodeClan is now seeking Glasgow companies as prospective employers, organisations who must be accredited living wage employers, to host the internships from mid-August.   

Loral Quinn, CodeClan’s CEO, said: “Our youth academy bootcamp will give you the skills and knowledge you need to master the basics of web design, helping you to jumpstart your future career in tech.  You don’t need any prior experience to join CodeClan Youth Academy, so even absolute beginners are welcomed with open arms.  We are now building a list of employer organisations for the paid internships, and we want to hear from any companies who might want to host an internship.  It’s a win-win because in addition to driving employment, you can end up with a fantastic employee who makes a real difference to your business.” 

Anne McLister, Head of Digital Economy, Glasgow City Council, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with CodeClan to support young Glaswegians to gain valuable digital skills along with a paid internship.  Glasgow City Region has a flourishing tech sector and this is a very exciting opportunity for young people to develop the skills to enable them to be part of that ecosystem.”

The coding bootcamp runs between Monday 10th July and Friday 4th August, with applications now open.  You can find out more information and apply directly via CodeClan’s website: https://codeclan.com/courses/youth-academy/
