Our Partnership With Google


Code Institute has been supporting our apprenticeship programs to develop new coders and particularly have been a great partner and source of a more diverse technical talent pool.

I recommend this course to everyone who would like to make their first step towards a career in programming. My background is psychology, and I had nothing to do with coding, or anything technical for that matter, before I started the Full-Stack Software Developer course part-time in August 2019. In April 2020, I was offered a 2-year apprenticeship at one of the tech giants! I knew about this opportunity from Jane, the Director of Employer Engagement at Code Institute. If it was not for her, I probably would not feel confident enough to even apply.
