The University of Manchester is pleased to be part of the consortium that was awarded the contract to set up the new Uk Institute of Coding.
The Institute of Coding (IoC) is a consortium of universities and employers, with a mission to develop the next generation of digital talent at degree level and above. The IoC will develop higher-level digital skills capabilities among those already in work as well as improve graduate employability. Its goals include developing specialist skills training in areas of strategic importance, boosting equality and diversity in technology-related education and careers and producing research, analysis and intelligence to anticipate future skills gaps.
At Manchester, we are developing tools and techniques for teaching industry relevant software engineering skills, by packaging our existing expertise and through new learner analytics to generate new expertise.
