About us

Want to get back to your career in tech but not sure which route to take?

Our tailored support and free programmes are designed to refresh your skills, rebuild your confidence and reignite your career in technology.

Our partnerships with inclusive brands, including some of the world's leading companies, help us connect talented individuals with progressive companies and create richly diverse workplaces together.

Follow us on social media on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram to get the latest updates on our programmes and community.

How does the programme work?

Through a combination of teaching sessions, workshops, and practical projects, you will gain a deep understanding of modern JavaScript and TypeScript.

We'll help you hone your skills, refresh your knowledge, and provide you with the latest insights into the tech industry.

You will be supported throughout by our team of knowledgeable and dedicated tech coaches and mentors who collectively hold almost 50 years of combined industry experience. They will provide you with clear, personalised, and actionable feedback on your work and will be on hand to answer questions or point you to further resources.

But it's not just about technical skills. You’ll also receive bespoke Career and Mindset coaching to help you build the skills needed to excel in your career, like having a growth mindset, framing your career break positively, and navigating interviews.

We understand that returning to the tech industry after a break can be daunting, but rest assured, our team are experienced in working with people returning to tech and know exactly how to help you reach your full potential. Aside from that, they’re also a lovely bunch of people!

The programme is fully funded by Skills Bootcamps – part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life. This means that all places on the programme are free for returners.

Please note: this is a full-time programme. The sessions and group work will take place during the day, so we recommend that you have between two to four days each week available for the duration of the course. We advise that you factor in some additional time around the sessions and external commitments for independent learning. Sessions run between 10am and 3pm (parents, we see you!) and are all delivered remotely via Zoom and Google Classroom.
