Before Code Nation, Jacob led the revolution of computing courses at The Manchester College, bringing in the first nationwide employer-sponsored course to the BTEC with the Certified by Amaze course at Openshaw. He was there for 4 years and taught at Level 3 and Level 5 with UCEN. Jacob believes that helping people learn to code is a must in today’s world, because as the industry expands, everyone will need developers.
In his spare time, Jacob is a fiercely competitive table tennis player and is nationally ranked as one of the best in the country. He is also on many table tennis committees to help inspire people to take up the great game, and you can almost guarantee that if he isn’t at Code Nation, he is playing or talking about table tennis.
