<Diversity and Inclusion: Our Commitment />

Diversity and inclusion are a big part of who we are. At a time where technology will define what it means to be human, it’s crucial that we ensure that our future is built by people from all walks of life, and that people from all walks of life have the opportunity to be a part of it.

As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion in tech, we have offered fully-funded scholarships since day one, and always will.

<The #WomenInTech Scholarship />

learn to code coding bootcamp scholarships for women
Less than a quarter of the British tech workforce is comprised of women. But businesses are committed to changing that - and so are we. We offer fully-funded scholarships every cohort to women looking to find work as software developers.
Am I eligible?

Anyone who identifies as a woman and wants to train and find work as a software developer in the North of England is eligible.

How can I be considered?

If you apply to our Full-Time or Part-Time Bootcamp, you will be considered automatically.

When will you decide who receives a scholarship?

We decide who to award scholarships to once interviews finish for the cohort you have applied for. This is usually 5 weeks before the cohort begins.

How do you decide who receives a scholarship?

Where we have more applications than available scholarships, we allocate the scholarships based on merit. Your initial application, learning trajectory and performance at your first interview will be considered as part of this.

How many #WomenInTech scholarships are available?

We will fully fund at least 2 scholarships per cohort. We are incredibly grateful to Ernst and Young for sponsoring 10 further places in 2017. If any further scholarships become available we will update this page.

<The Community Scholarship />

Everyone should have access to this creative, fulfilling and rewarding career. Our fully-funded Community Scholarship is designed for individuals facing difficulties or barriers of any kind, including but not limited to financial barriers or belonging to an under-represented group in tech.
