STEM conference 2019: The Institute of Coding

The Institute of Coding is a major initiative (£20M of government matched funding) to address the national shortage of digital skills as well as respond to the surprising fact that Computing graduates have relatively poor employment rates and are drawn from a less diverse pool than one would like. As well as university students (both Computing and other disciplines) we are also looking at digital professionals (with degree apprenticeships and short courses all with substantial industrial involvement) and professionals in other occupations. We are producing a new co-designed industry standard and researching blockchain-based skill accreditation.
