Sunderland firm teams up with Google to bring digital skills to North East
A Wearside-based training provider has teamed up with Google to help tackle the region’s digital skills gap.
Code, based at Bridge House, Sunderland, provides training in software development, digital marketing, cyber security and IT through advanced apprenticeships with companies such as Vertu Motors Plc, TT2 and Master Debonair.
The company recently teamed up with industry leaders, Google, to run a coding masterclass.
The day involved teaching the apprentices the principles of coding and was led by experts in the industry, with apprentices gaining invaluable knowledge and skills to help them in their future careers.
Code opened its doors to Google Digital Garage in a bid to close the digital skills gap. Last year, research found that just 12 per cent of leaders believe school leavers and graduates have the right digital skills.
