Professional Software Development

offered by CodeClan



Our full-time, project-based coding course is fast-paced and stimulating – just like your new career in the demanding tech industry will be.

We’re the first digital skills academy in the UK to become a Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) approved centre, which means we are the only UK academy to be able to offer a Professional Development Award in Software Development, recognised and endorsed by employers across Scotland. With a high ratio of instructors to students, our teaching approach supplements and complements more traditional routes.

After a meet-up to get to know your instructors and fellow students, you’ll work through structured assignments and online courses and begin to pick up key terminology and gain confidence in navigating your development environment. You’ll complete this part of the course from home over 3 weeks.
