Abstract

The Institute of Coding is a new £40m+ initiative by the UK Government
to transform the digital skills profile of the country. In
the context of significant national and international education and
skills policy scrutiny, it responds to the apparently contradictory
data that the country has a digital skills shortage across a variety of
sectors, yet the university system produces computing graduates
every year who end up unemployed, or underemployed.
In this paper, we describe the background and evidence base for
the Institute of Coding, its key themes and current activities, as well
as reflecting on potential replicability of aspects of the Institute to
other nations or regions with similar ambitions.
