The Institute of Coding 

The Open University (OU) is a major partner in the UK’s Institute of Coding (IoC), a new, exciting, national initiative, led by the University of Bath, supported by theme leaders Aston University, Coventry University, the Open University and Queen Mary University of London. The Institute brings together a range of universities, industry, training providers and professional bodies to address the UK’s digital skills gaps. 

The Institute’s vision is to enhance the education and employability of every IoC learner, and ensure that employers and individuals across the UK can access the skills they need to compete in the global digital economy. This unique and innovative collaboration has been made possible with £20m from the Higher Education Funding Council for England and match funding from universities and industry partners. 

The Institute of Coding will develop and deliver innovative, industry-focused higher education across the UK. It will develop accredited degree schemes and short courses aimed at professionals in a wide range of sectors, as well as working to widen the participation of women, returners to work and hard to reach groups. 

 

KMi in the IoC  

KMi’s Professor John Domingue Leads the IoC’s first theme on University Learning, which aims to influence computer science teaching in universities nationally. An important part of KMi’s work in this theme will be collaboration with the OU’s School of Computing & Communication, a number of IoC partners and industry representing employers and educators to: 

  • create an IoC Industrial Accreditation standard that will connect students and employers in new ways, using blockchain based micro accreditation (including badges) and learner records. 
  • mainstream data analytics within IoC partners to enhance teaching and improve educational outcomes.
