SC Codes is a learning platform and coding community built to connect South Carolinians to the education and resources they need to unlock careers in technology. A collaboration powered by the S.C. Department of Commerce’s Office of Innovation and Build Carolina, SC Codes not only provides free access to technology education, it also connects, trains and empowers programmers across our state.
We’re helping our technical workforce level up. Our goal is to prepare more South Carolinians for jobs in the technology industry by making it easy to access curriculum, training, mentors, events, and job postings. A ready workforce means more opportunity, stronger communities, and an attractive economy.
SC Codes was developed to build an increasingly diverse technology talent pipeline to support industry in our state. It’s our mission to work with partners around the state to ensure that any interested student has access to our platform.
SC Codes is an online platform offering coding courses and mentorship opportunities to anyone who wants access to technology education. Courses can be completed at your own pace, in your own home — regardless of your technological background. We have resources for students brand new to coding as well as courses for professional developers looking to add a new skill. We’ll also connect you with experienced programming mentors in your area who can offer guidance and support in-person or online. And it’s all free of charge.
From your first coding lesson to your career path, we’re here to help you get where you want to be. We partner with local organizations and volunteers around the state to offer mentorship and support to students taking our courses and to graduates looking for the next right step.
After completing a set of modules, SC Codes will connect you with the next best step toward reaching your career goals. We’ve got a network of experienced mentors and business partners dedicated to helping you find internships or apprenticeships, direct employment, or further training and education.
We’ve partnered with organizations in communities across the state who want to help South Carolinians learn to code and join the industry.
