Dr Kate Miltner

Research Associate

Over the course of her three-year TRAIN@Ed Fellowship, Kate will be examining the experiences and outcomes for UK adults who attend digital skills academies (i.e., coding bootcamps, coding schools) with a particular focus on issues of inclusion and belonging. The first element of her project consists of a UK-wide survey of graduates of digital skills academies, with the aim of providing a comprehensive public-facing resource of student outcomes across a variety of programmes. The second element of her project involves an ethnography of a Scottish coding academy; Kate also conducted an ethnography at an American coding school for adults for her doctoral research, and the Scottish ethnography will be part of larger cross-national investigation of these organizations.
