Our Partners Who Share Our Values
Diversity Boosts Performance
The differential likelihood of outperformance – 48% – separates the most from the least gender-diverse companies.
Code Institute is recognised by the industry as the gold standard. Ethnic and gender diversity in the workplace brings a richer, more layered aspect to business decisions and greater creativity to solving business problems. A McKinsey report shows that organisations with gender diversity have a 25% better likelihood of financial outperformance while ethnic diversity increases it further to 36%. The differential likelihood of outperformance – 48% – separates the most from the least gender-diverse companies.
Coding Careers for Women
Coding Careers for Women is a joint initiative between Code Institute, Education and Training Boards, Regional Skills Fora and tech employers in Ireland. It offers women who are unemployed or returning to the workforce a pathway into tech careers.
Scholarships for Refugees
Code Institute has been working to offer scholarships for refugees across several European countries, including Ireland, Spain and Germany. This CSR initiative is part of the LevelUp programme in partnership with Zartis. Code Institute aims to upskill refugees and asylum seekers in software development by providing them with focused training and connecting participants with tech employers.
During a corporate restructuring project, Code Institute partnered with ING outplacement department and offered staff reskilling opportunities as a part of their exit package. Code Institute ran an intensive 16-week online programme for Dutch employees. These students were supported with bi-daily check-ins, 1:1 career support, tutoring and monitoring. Within three months of completing the course, all students gained employment in technical roles.
Partnership with the Irish Deaf Society
Irish Deaf Society and Code Institute are developing a partnership that reskills the deaf and hard of hearing community into employment as full-stack software developers. In line with other programmes centred on accessibility and inclusion, this pioneering initiative will seek to lay the blueprint for supporting the deaf and hard of hearing community to reskill into tech occupations.
Rural Skills Development
Code Institute is recognised by industry as the gold standard in career conversion, and rural skills development. We partner with local governments and employers on training initiatives related to employment, diversity and equality in the tech sector
