Migracode acts as a bridge between the demand for skilled people in the tech sector and people with a migration background who are eager to work in the tech industry. Founded in 2019, we are cooperating with other code schools in Europe to build a large community of companies and students to foster both labor integration as well as social inclusion.

Our philosophy

We believe that everyone deserves the right to follow education, especially those with less opportunities. Therefore we focus on those with a migration background and who have the eagerness to learn, but are often not able to do so.

Our support

Our project is financed by various sources, ranging from the European Union to companies in the private sector. Together with the support of our partners we are able to continue our journey.

Building a migrant-tech community

Together with professional developers and our students we are constantly expanding our community of local people, migrants, refugees, companies, NGO’s and other organisations that are involved in our project. This whole process is in line with the philosophy with the organisation behind Migracode: the Open Cultural Center. More information about them can be found here.

Inclusive and supportive

With offering free education to vulnerable groups come other responsibilities. That is why we do not only offer technical support, but also other forms of support to allow motivated people from all backgrounds and in all situations to join our school.

Child Support

We have volunteers who can take care of the children of students if needed.

Psychosocial Support

We have a Social Worker within our organisation as a first contact point for any issues.

Legal Support

We have volunteers who point our students in the right direction for any legal questions.
