Northcoders have recently partnered with InnovateHer to support an 8 week ‘web development’ themed programme at The East Manchester Academy, to enable 20 high-school girls in year 8 to learn digital skills and be inspired by industry role models. The aim was to empower them to have the confidence to pursue STEM subjects, Northcoders also provided role models to help lead the programme.
We are now thrilled to announce that we will be launching a further initiative in partnership with Northcoders. As part of this, we will provide a number of accessibility places for women aged 18+ on the Northcoders coding bootcamps, to tackle the underrepresentation of women in tech, and provide a life-changing opportunity to passionate women who would not otherwise be able to afford the up front cost of attending the 12 week bootcamp.
Currently 97% of Northcoders graduates are employed, within an average of 15 days of graduating. This could be a transformational experience for women who want to make a career change or are returning to work after a break.
To be eligible for this financial aid package, applicants must attend a InnovateHer coding workshop before applying.
The full eligibility criteria are as follows:
