What’s included in the Academy?

Our Academy is completely free. But that doesn’t mean we compromise on quality. Together with our educational and technology partners, our programmes are packed full of learning experiences, designed to help you maximise your potential and ensure you have access to all the ground-breaking education you need to excel.

Throughout the programme every student has a diverse range of experiences designed to help them learn, apply and contextualise their experiences in real workplace environments. This in turn provides students with an incredible, unparalleled education, regardless of their background.

Who the Academy is for

Whoever you are and wherever you are in the world, we want to support you. Our Academy is educationally agnostic. That means that we don’t care whether you’ve just recently graduated from university, have been an Apprenticeship or bootcamp, or have been working in an unrelated industry for the past 20 years.

If you want to develop a career in technology, we want to enable that.

Those seeking a change of scenery

You’re educated and experienced. You have been working for years, but recent times have meant you’ve begun to consider whether your chosen career path is the right one. Use our Academy to delve into the world of technology, enhance on your pre-existing skills and even develop new ones.

We’ll have you ready for a new avenue in no time.

Those in their final year of academia

We’re not just looking for university graduates (although you guys are welcome too). We welcome applications from those who are close to completing their courses at technical colleges, polytechnics and well, any other form of traditional academia.

With nearly one fifth of all graduates saying they don’t feel ‘work-ready’ our programmes provide you with critical employability skills and prepare you for the world of work.

Those studying apprenticeships

If you’re currently studying at a community college or enrolled in an apprenticeship, we want to welcome you onto our Academy. It’s generally recommended that you’re at the start of your apprenticeship, or in the final quarter of your educational programme before applying; this will ensure that you maximise on the experience within our Academy and are ready for the workplace.
