Andy Lord

Former window cleaner Andy Lord is the man who believes he has the solution to the UK’s growing digital crisis. By 2020 it’s estimated there will be one million unfilled jobs in the digital skills sector and Lord believes his business – Code Nation – is the answer.

Rather than just teaching people how to code and programme, Code Nation teaches them how to get a job by showing them life skills – and the early results have been amazing. With direct links to businesses around 93 per cent of the paid students who have passed through the system have been offered a job within three days. Not bad for a guy who left school without a single qualification!
