Dear Anonymous,

Firstly, thank you for mentioning the fact that we offer our students the option to study for a Professional Development Award (PDA) in Software Development – a professional level qualification recognised and endorsed by employers across Scotland and accredited by the SQA – as part of our full-time Professional Software Development course.

We’re proud to be the first accredited digital skills academy in Scotland to offer a PDA in Software Development and we’ll soon have 100 students who have completed this, with many more to follow.

With regards to funding options, we do promote Professional and Career Development Loans (PCDL), administered by the UK Skills Funding Agency to potential students, commercial bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning. You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning.

Some students may also be eligible to access the Skills Development Scotland managed Oil & Gas Transition Training Fund.  We have been able to offer some full and part-funded scholarships during our first 18 months of operation, usually dependent on sponsorship from partner organisations.

I note your comment around CodeClan not being eligible for SAAS funding and I wanted to take this opportunity to state that whilst we are not yet eligible, we are working through a process to be a registered provider for SAAS funding - to say we have no plans to do so is untrue. 

We are always looking for student funding opportunities, both through government sponsored programmes and within our partner network.  

Our apologies if the above information wasn’t offered during your discussion with a member of the our team. 

CodeClan is a not-for-profit social enterprise, we do not have shareholders or founders. We acknowledge the cost of our course is significant to many people, however we believe in the value of what we deliver and in giving students the best opportunity to find a career in the digital technologies sector. 

If you have any concerns or questions about any aspects of our course we’re always happy to discuss them over the phone on 0131 290 2600 or by email, with all the details available on our website.

Regards,

Adam Bannon, Acting CEO, CodeClan

Dear Alumni,

We're sorry that you found the employment process disappointing and appreciate you taking the time to express your concerns - we have taken them very seriously. To be honest, we too felt that it needed refinement and have therefore made substantial improvements to this aspect of the course. 

Firstly we have made it easier for employers to become partners, increasing the pool of tech companies looking to employ our graduates to 83, providing a rich pool of a wide variety of jobs. 

Secondly, we have created a series of engagement activities for employers and students from company presentations to Meet-the-Employer events and Speed-networking evenings. Our employer engagement team works individually with each student to match them to the right job, opening up as many opportunities as possible with multiple interviews and site visits.

Lastly, we have further developed our curriculum to match what employers want and extended our career preparation sessions to include technical interview and test techniques working with expert tech recruiters. This has made the transition to employment highly successful for the majority of our students - in fact 85% are employed in the tech sector within 6 months of completing the course

I sincerely hope you have found the skills you learned on the course useful and productive and have been able to apply them to a new role.

Our latest on CodeClan

Thanks!
