Upskill your developers from anywhere

Equip your junior developers with the skills you'd expect from more experienced developers and fast-track their progress with our 13-month training programmes, paid for by the Apprenticeship Levy.

Built and delivered by developers

Even the most able junior developers benefit from ongoing training and skills development. Yet not every tech business has the people or resources to make this happen.

Your developers will follow a 13-month apprenticeship curriculum developed by industry experts, and is delivered by our software developers who specialise professionally in the area they teach.

What's more, you can take advantage of Apprenticeship Levy funding, co-investment or levy transfer to cover the costs of training.

FAQs

  • Who is the Upskilling Programme for?

    • Junior developers or Northcoders graduates already in your business
    • New hires who are about to graduate from a Northcoders bootcamp
  • Can the programme be completed remotely?

    Yes!

  • How much will it cost my business?

    Most of the time, nothing! We utilise the levy and government subsidies to fund the programme for you. The worst case scenario is a 5% cost incurred, with 95% covered by the government.

  • Who is eligible for the programme?

    Anyone who is working in, or ready to work in, related tech roles is eligible. For example, your Developers, Data Engineers, DevOps Engineers or UX professionals could all complete our Upskilling Programme. You could also hire someone who has completed a coding bootcamp or a relevant degree, and enrol them on this programme.

  • What is the time commitment for my developers?

    In simple terms, this programme requires a 20% time commitment. The majority of that time commitment is through contributing flexible hours to the learning.

  • What commitment would a line manager need to give?

    A line manager would need to catch up on a quarterly basis with the learner and their assessor, and making sure your developer is allocated the time they need to learn.

  • What qualification would they earn?

    Successful participants are awarded a Level 4 Software Development certified by the British Computing Society (BCS)
