Tech Returners is a positive empowering organisation providing skilled tech professionals returning to industry accessible opportunities to refresh their skills and reignite their careers back to and through technology with a range of programmes, resources and development tools.
The organisation is committed to removing the barriers which returners face after a career break and to tackle the skills shortage in technology 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 with businesses like AutoTrader, The BBC, Booking.com, Lloyds Banking Group, ANS and Infinity Works to name but a few, as a result of our eight week inclusive, accessible and positive programme which 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 two 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.
Your Journey Into Leadership: is a programme designed to empower women in technology to develop the skills and confidence to take the next steps in their career, to develop, succeed and inspire others. The programme runs over a period of 4 months and previous participants have gone on to win awards and appear on stage at TEDx and Reframe Women in Tech Conference. Businesses or individuals can take part in the programme with the option for businesses to benefit from exclusive programmes custom-designed for their business.
Everyone involved with Tech Returners becomes part of the TR community encouraging collaboration and engagement across programmes and benefits from the expertise of the Tech Returners team who provide technical skills teaching alongside career support tools.
