16th September 2019 marks the 5th year of National Coding Week, and MatsSoft is proud to be getting involved. They are offering 10 young learners in Bedford the experience of being trained in their MATS Low-code platform.

As one of the UK’s industry leading in Low-code providers, the MATS Low-code platform is widely used across the private and public sectors - from banking and retail through to councils and healthcare. It's even recognised by Forrester and Gartner – leading market research companies that advise on game changing technology.

The 3-day training course and platform knowledge will offer the lucky students a significant advantage as they enter the jobs market. The course is the 3-day Builders Essentials Level 1, which takes place from 17th-19th September during National Coding Week. The course will be held in their stunning landmark offices and training facilities in Bedford Heights.

Once trained on MATS Low-code the students will automatically gain access to the MATS Community AppShare, an online community where MATS Low-code developers can upload, share and download tested Accelerators.

The 10 coveted places are on offer to local IT students. The session is being advertised to Bedford Modern School, Bedford College and Bedford University, but other local students are welcome to apply. There are still some slots left – interested Bedford students should get in contact via email to apply to take part.

The course will teach young learners how to develop Low-code applications, which are becoming an essential day-to-day part of the British workplace. It’s estimated that by 2020, the UK will have more than 750,000 new digital jobs. British businesses will need to train over 2 million people to meet this demand.

The National Coding Week initiative was originally founded by former headteacher Richard Rolfe and tech entrepreneur Jordan Love with the aim of filling the growing skills gap. The pair were inspired after training a group of unemployed people in coding skills – who were then offered jobs.

MatsSoft is part of the Netcall group of companies, and as a leading British business within the tech arena, Netcall wanted to help inspire the next generation, show their support and play their part in supporting National Coding Week.
