CodeClan and Eden Scott sign careers partnership
Melinda Matthews-Clarkson: the model works
Digital training academy CodeClan has signed a partnership with recruitment agency Eden Scott to create a “career pipeline” for its graduates.
Those who have not found a role within CodeClan’s partner programme after six months will be eligible for help from Eden Scott.
CodeClan has re-trained abouty 800 individuals, mainly in coding skills, since the organisation launched next door to the Codebase incubator in Edinburgh four years ago. It now has campuses in Glasgow and Inverness.
Melinda Matthews-Clarkson, CEO, said: “We’ve proven the CodeClan model works. The challenge now is to scale what we do and find our graduates not only their first role within the industry but retain that talent and support their ongoing career.
“This strategic partnership aligns Eden Scott’s experience and expertise with CodeClan’s ongoing growth and enables us to build out our offering, to make our service to Scotland’s digital future even more valuable.”
Peter Dunn, associate director and head of Eden Scott’s tech and digital team, said: “We see the partnership between Eden Scott and CodeClan as an exciting step forward for Scotland’s coding community.
“The demand for talent is growing exponentially as our economy becomes increasingly dominated by technology. CodeClan has established itself as a vital supporter of this growth sector and this partnership with Eden Scott will provide a seamless extension to the career ambitions of their graduates.”
