Digital skills school Code Nation has enlisted Manchester marketing agency Fast Web Media to help with its plans to grow its business and geographical reach.

Responding to the growing need for tech skills including coding, Manchester-based Code Nation is backed up by its dedicated recruitment company, helping the UK prepare for Industry 4.0 and fill the digital skills gap.

Helping the school achieve its goals, Fast Web will boost awareness of the courses on offer, which are open to everyone. It has also signed up to become a Code Nation Pledger, which gives employers first-look at coding graduates.

“We have a lot of exciting plans ahead and it was essential to find a partner to go on the journey with us,” said Code Nation CEO Andy Lord.

“Fast Web Media displayed the passion and commitment to our mission of being able to teach anybody with the desire to learn to code in just 12 weeks.

“We pride ourselves on creating job-ready software developer professionals, nurturing untapped talent through an industry guided curriculum and a personal well-being programme. We can’t wait to get going.”

Fast Web Media head of agency Rob Weatherhead commented: “Code Nation is a great business that does amazing work, not only in helping people looking to take their first steps into coding, but also in realising their potential in an increasingly digital world.

“Enhancing Britain’s digital skills is one of the most important challenges we face and we’re committed to helping Code Nation make a positive impact.”
