Here at ACN we focus on delivering high quality, succinct and effective coding courses to empower individuals, and particularly women, through providing them with one of the most in demand skills in the world – coding.
According to Deloitte’s 2016 Technology, Media & Telecommunications Predictions report, by the end of this year fewer than 25% of digital jobs will be held by women. This statistic epitomises just how large the gender gap in the Tech industry is, and the figures are further startling when looking at the numbers of women who hold senior positions in the industry in comparison to men.
ACN is founded by 3 women, all passionate about reducing the gender gap in the Tech industry. We believe to break the mould women need to understand just how exciting Tech can be. Learning to code opens a whole new world not only in terms of creativity but on a practical level, having these skills improves your career prospects. According to Career Builder digital employment is set to grow by 5.4% by 2020, which is higher than the total job growth rate expected in the UK in the same time-frame.
At ACN, we have decided to offer at least one scholarship place on each of our courses because we want to give women, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, a chance to acquire future-proof skills that will stand them in good stead to move with the digital market.
If you are a woman and would like to apply for a scholarship place on one of our upcoming courses please send us an email via the contact page.
