Be-IT and CodeClan announce coding scholarship
The company is the first recruitment sector backer of the CodeClan project.
Capital-based CodeClan, which is supported by the Scottish Government, Scottish Qualifications Authority and ScotlandIS, was created to train the next generation of software developers.
Gareth Biggerstaff, managing director of Be-IT Resourcing, said, “Our scholarship is designed to support an economically disadvantaged student studying coding as Scotland addresses the skills shortage in this sector.
“As recruiters, we have daily experience of the very real problems businesses face in sourcing IT talent."
Rab Campbell, employer engagement director with CodeClan, welcomed the private sector initiative, saying, “It is enormously encouraging that Be-IT are providing this scholarship, which will deliver real and practical support to ensure we get the best talent available into our industry.”
