At Makers, we are creating a new generation of tech talent who are skilled and ready for the changing world of work. We are inspired by the idea of discovering and unlocking potential in people for the benefit of 21st century business and society. We believe in alternative ways to learn how to code, how to be ready for work and how to be of value to an organization. At our core, Makers combines tech education with employment possibilities that transform lives.
This intensive four-month program (which includes a month-long PreCourse) sets students up to become a high quality professional software engineer.
We’re also actively making the tech industry more inclusive and diverse through offering discounts for women and running a Fellowship program to make the course more accessible.
Launched in February 2013, Makers has trained more than 1,500 students, who have gone on to join leading software companies including ThoughtWorks, Lyst, BSkyB, M&S, the Ministry of Justice, Deloitte Digital, TechStars, CompareTheMarket, Financial Times etc.
Our ambition is to help as many people as possible to start a new career in software development, whilst providing companies with an incredible talent pipeline.
Makers is a company built on trust. We'd like to invite you to read about self-setting salaries, building companies based on trust, non-violent communications, some inspiration from Lao Tzu and many other wonders hidden on our blog!
