The Institute of Coding (IoC) is a collaborative national consortium of industry, educators and outreach providers that are working together to respond to the UK’s digital skills gap through the delivery of employer-led digital skills education.
It launched in January 2018, with £20-million in funding from the Office for Students.
Through a collaborative approach, IoC partners have created more than 150 new courses that have engaged 900,000 diverse learners to date.
The Institute of Coding also offers Skills Bootcamps, which are flexible courses of up to 16 weeks that give people the opportunity to build up their tech skills and fast-track to an interview with an employer.
“Our mission is to break down barriers to digital learning and employment. We believe learning should be a lifelong process and that everyone has a right to improve their skills. We want to spread opportunity by offering access to education, providing what you need, when you need it, in a place you can reach,” IoC states in its website.
