Our organisation is committed to removing the barriers returners face after career breaks. We tackle the digital skills shortage by empowering skilled people back into technology careers and providing continuous support on their journeys through technology and into leadership.
Your Return To Tech: Since 2017 we’ve been empowering returners into mid to senior-level technical careers. Businesses that have hired our returners include AutoTrader, The BBC, Booking.com, Lloyds Banking Group, ANS, and Infinity Works to name but a few. Our eight week inclusive, accessible and flexible programme is open to anyone returning to a technical career with at least 5 years of professional experience and who have taken a career break for six years or less. The course is delivered by our team of technical coaches and individuals receive career development and support from dedicated People and Talent professionals.
The Your Journey Through Tech: programme focuses on continuously developing the technical skills required to advance through a software development career. Focusing on areas of DevOps Theory and Practice and with the option for businesses to upskill individuals or entire teams.
