IBAT College Dublin and Code Institute - Redefining Classroom ICT Education  

We are proud to announce an exciting new partnership with Code Institute who are dedicated to bridging the coding skills gap and the conversation gap between developers and non-technical professionals.  

IBAT College Dublin is teaming up with Code Institute to deliver state-of-the-art coding courses from our ultra-modern, purpose-built City Centre campus.   Starting June 2017, aspiring coders and technical upskillers can benefit from Code Institute’s accelerated, accredited courseware, enhanced by IBAT College Dublin’s classroom engagement expertise and state-of-the-art Temple Bar facilities.  

As both organisations are pioneers of new model industry-aligned education, IBAT College Dublin Director, Shane Ormsby was sure that Code Institute’s courseware was a naturally good fit. “We believe that courses like the Diploma in Fullstack Software Development and Tech Fundamentals are instrumental in keeping Ireland on tech’s cutting edge.” said Shane Ormsby. “We’re looking forward to augmenting the development of practically skilled ICT professionals.” he continued.   The partnership has been designed to redefine ICT education in Ireland while ensuring Code Institute can continue to expand their global reach.   “While we’re dedicated to bridging the skills gap globally and creating alternative learning solutions, our (new) Dublin Centre of Excellence remains the superlative in bootcamp-style tech education.   “Ireland’s huge capacity for technical learning and the tech industry’s ever growing presence here creates an amazing opportunity to identify student needs and refine what skills employers are seeking” said Jim Cassidy, CEO of Code Institute.   IBAT College Dublin is currently enrolling for a classroom-based Diploma in Tech Fundamentals, starting June, 2017.

Professional Courses - Graduate Networking Event.

On Thursday January 26th we celebrated the achievements of our 243 part-time Diploma graduates who all completed Professional evening courses in the most recent semester with a networking event in the College. Courses ranged from Supervisory Management and Project Management, Digital Marketing and Event Management to Mobile App Development and Cyber Security. These programmes have all been developed to meet current industry skill needs and are taught by industry practitioners who are currently working in their field of expertise.

Our guest speaker for the networking evening was John Lyons, Consultant, Talent Solutions with LinkedIn, who gave an engaging presentation on how LinkedIn can help you professionally. Not just during your job search, but also in strengthening your professional reputation and growing your reach. This can be done by discovering content that matters to you, building your knowledge; obtaining endorsements and being ‘known for what you know’.

Professional development is essential in the labour market as companies are continuously evolving, updating and changing. It is now imperative any workforce has the skills and knowledge required to effectively execute their roles.

These part-time professional programmes can be balanced with other full-time commitments and IBAT College Dublin offers 2-3 intakes per academic year, meaning you can start the programme during a study period that suits you, February, May or September.
