Stephen’s central role at Code Nation is to create awareness of the wonderful things that Code Nation can do for businesses. He does this by engaging with companies to help them understand our unique apprenticeship offering and how they can employ our graduates without having to pay a fee. By telling the Code Nation story at leading sector events, Stephen gives employers access to top quality, business-ready junior software developers and cyber security technologists.
Another key aspect of Stephen’s day-to-day is getting to know our students so he can align them with the right employer to help meet their career aspirations. Having the ability to code opens up an entirely different world of employment for everyone, and Stephen is keen to ensure that people can learn the skills to keep up with the advances of Industry 4.0.
Before joining Code Nation, Stephen ran his own business, providing top quality teaching and support staff to schools in the North West. This was a perfect role on his journey to working at Code Nation as it gave him the skills required to find the most suitable employers consistently and to align the best graduates with them. Stephen also has experience in the education sector working with young people, having been a Head of Science in a secondary school.
Aside from work at Code Nation, Stephen enjoys playing football and still plays regularly when his dodgy ankles allow it! Stephen also loves spending time with his family and their dogs as well as watching his beloved Manchester United.
