At Northcoders, our commitment to nurturing talent and fostering a strong sense of community goes far beyond the completion of your coding bootcamp. We understand that once you've learned the skills, the journey doesn't stop there; it merely takes a different path. That's why we're excited to introduce our brand-new Northcoders Alumni Graduate Buddy Scheme.

In September, we celebrated the graduation of our July cohort, marking the beginning of their journey into the tech industry. To ensure that our graduates continue to receive support and guidance even after their time at Northcoders, we've launched the Alumni Graduate Buddy Scheme. This initiative pairs recent graduates with experienced members of our Northcoders Alumni community, forming a bridge between the past and the present.

How It Works

The Alumni Graduate Buddy Scheme is designed to provide graduates with the tools they need to succeed in the competitive tech job market. Here's how it works:

1. Pairing Graduates and Alumni: This graduation, 28 graduates from our July cohort have been paired with 28 experienced members of our Alumni community. Each pairing is carefully curated, with an emphasis on matching the specific needs and goals of the graduate with the relevant expertise of the alumni buddy.

2. Continuous Support: The buddy relationship is intended to be ongoing. Graduates can reach out to their alumni buddies for advice, support, and inspiration as they continue their journey into the tech industry.

3. Monitoring and Future Expansion: We're committed to the success of our graduates, and we'll continuously monitor the success of the Alumni Graduate Buddy Scheme. We aim to expand this program to benefit more of our future cohorts, ensuring that as our community grows, the support system grows with it.

The Power of the Northcoders Community

At Northcoders, we believe that the strength of our community is an invaluable resource. By connecting our recent graduates with experienced alumni, we aim to harness the collective knowledge, experience, and passion that defines our community.

The Alumni Graduate Buddy Scheme is more than just a program; it's a testament to the bond that unites all Northcoders. It's a way for our alumni to give back to the community that has nurtured their growth, and it's a way for our graduates to tap into the vast wealth of knowledge and experience that exists within our alumni network.

We're excited to see the positive impact that this scheme will have on our graduates' journeys and look forward to expanding it to include even more members of our Northcoders family in the future. Together, we're building a stronger, more resilient, and tightly-knit tech community.

Northcoders isn't just about learning to code; it's about forging lifelong connections, building a career, and making a lasting impact. With the Alumni Graduate Buddy Scheme, we're taking the next step in ensuring that every Northcoder achieves their full potential, no matter where they are in their journey.
