DIGITAL training provider CodeClan is linking with local business to support its new CodeClan Highlands campus in Inverness.
Companies which have joined the campus’s partner programme get early access to students studying CodeClan’s full-stack web development course, before they graduate as part of the organisation’s unique match-making careers service.
The first Highlands partners to join CodeClan are social media specialist Tuminds, website and marketing business Yellow Cherry Digital, IT consultancy Lugo IT, electronics manufacturer Quarch Technology, Scottish National Heritage, the University of the Highland and the Islands, digital marketing agency teclan, Cap Gemini and Football Pools.
All of the partners will be able to access CodeClan’s growing calendar of industry events, make use of the organisation’s Inverness venue at Wasps Creative Academy on the site of the former Inverness Royal Academy. Partners will also be the first to provide speakers and mentors for students during the course, and are eligible to join the advisory groups which help shape the CodeClan curriculum.
CodeClan chief executive Melinda Matthews-Clarkson said: “CodeClan’s partners are a large part of our success to date. They give us insight into the evolution of their industries, the changing nature of their challenges and how our graduates fit into their corporate culture.
“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome our first dedicated Highlands partners on-board. They demonstrate the incredible diversity and range of sectors and businesses in the region.”
