Community, not just training
At Tech Returners, whilst we provide training and support to Returners, we consider our organisation a community rather than a training business. Many of our learners join the programme because of a desire to be amongst others who have shared a similar journey and similar barriers. Empathy and support plays an important part amongst our cohorts.
Growing and thriving
We now have a community of more than 340 supportive individuals across digital channels such as Slack as well as in-person meet ups! Amongst this group, events, knowledge and support is shared regularly providing benefit to all.
Tech Returners and beyond
We’ve seen friendships and connections being built that will last for life and this goes beyond our Tech Returners community. Members are now part of wider community across the Manchester and London tech scene. We see this community as our advocates, and we act the same for them.
