Leeds-based Northcoders, one of the UK’s largest independent providers of training programmes for software coding, is to open a new training hub in Birmingham city centre that will deliver the company’s range of "bootcamp" courses across the Midlands.

The new site, which will open on 3rd May, will be in Spaces at The Mailbox on Commercial Street and will have dedicated office space. Staff and students will also have access to the available co-working areas.

A spokesman said: "The launch of the hub is as a result of the recent increase in demand for technology training and upskilling in the region. The centre will facilitate the flexibility of hybrid teaching both online and in person, with access available immediately."
