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.
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.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela

أصبح ممكناً بواسطة Open Cultural Center
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.
Our 4th Pillar: Inclusive and Supportive
Our CodeWomen project within MigraCode offers our female students a support platform to exchange knowledge and create meaningful connections.
Mental Health Care Team
We have an internal social worker and various voluntary professional therapists who offer psychosocial support to many of our students on a weekly basis.
We have volunteers who point our students in the right direction for any legal questions and we collaborate with other NGOs to offer more support.
For students who face big educational challenges and who started coding from scratch, we link them to a steady ‘CodeBuddy’ during the course.
Through an amazing collaboration with the Oxford House Barcelona, we offer free English classes to all MigraCode students throughout their MigraCode course.
Our internal Social Worker collaborates with all our volunteers and partner organisations to provide personalised additional support to our students.
