PwC’s Academy, the talent and skills development business of PwC, has introduced a number of courses tailored for professionals at each stage of their coding journey. In partnership with UK-based digital education pioneer, Code Nation, the qualifications aim to support national initiatives and future strategies in the UAE. The three-week-long virtual learning courses are available from September 12, 2021.
Of particular relevance to the UAE’s “National Program for Coders”, an initiative that seeks to make the UAE the world’s foremost destination for coders and future innovators, the partnership offers a valuable contribution to reducing the current technical skills gap in the region, and supporting the country’s vision for the future. By leveraging a combination of technologies, the coding courses offer participants flexible, individual learning plans – enabling personal communication and collaboration with their instructors in real-time.
The additional support of a development team, access to team chats and screen shares creates a supportive learning environment that enables students to quickly and confidently gain proficiency in coding skills. The result for participants is the potential to become immediately employable, transition to new roles within their existing organizations, and gain knowledge of one of the most trending skills in today’s digital economy.
