Would you like the chance to supercharge your tech career with a FREE software engineering academy and exciting work placement?

 

futureproof’s award-winning 13-week academy gives you the tech skills and experience to thrive. The academy is followed by a 2-year tech role in one of their many exciting partner businesses, giving you the opportunity to rapidly accelerate your tech career experience.

 

What is the opportunity?

 

  • futureproof’s goal is simple: to develop the most diverse community of high-potential engineering talent in the world.
  • People embarking on tech careers have remarkable potential to thrive in the sector, yet our current system is underestimating them. Thriving in the complex world of technology requires creativity, resilience and original thinking. We need a new approach – one where they learn how to solve real problems, merely learn tools. Where they learn how to think, not what to think.
  • futureproof’s intensive 13-week academy is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience you need to supercharge your career in tech. Over a two-year period, futureproof associates receive a package worth £93,000, including ongoing learning curriculum, a £500 certification budget, monthly career coaching, and mental health support throughout.

 

Who are futureproof?

 

  • futureproof is one of the UK’s leading tech training academies. Its award-winning, free coding academy is designed to empower the next generation of diverse technology professionals.
  • They provide high-quality training from experts across a wide range of tech topics – from front- and back-end engineering to data science and cyber security – and partnering with companies where associates will thrive.
  • Making tech careers inclusive is at the core of what they do. Unlike traditional tech bootcamps, futureproof’s academy is free for students, meaning applicants are not constrained by personal finances. The diversity of their student base far exceeds the national average: 85% are from lower- or middle-income families, 57% are from minority ethnic backgrounds, and 38% are female. They also have ambitious aims to become the world’s first tech academy to reach 50:50 gender parity in our students.

 

What is the training academy?

 

  • This is a 13-week training academy followed-up with a 2-year commercial placement. You’ll learn how to work in an agile environment, you’ll be taught the how, what and why of code. You’ll learn business skills so you can connect your code to the commercial realities of work. Full stack web development – you’ll be taught HTML/CSS, JavaScript, React, Python as well as ‘how’ to learn languages to make you adaptable and able to code in any stack.
  • This intense academy will utilise assignments, assessments, group projects and more to ensure you’re learning full stack web development effectively.
  • You will be able to pick between learning in a virtual (100% at home) or hybrid (part in their classroom in Victoria, part at home) environment depending on your location.
  • After 13 weeks of learning there is potential to land a 2-year placement in technology which futureproof will help you find. Their employment partners include companies like Ford, Babylon Health, Ovo Energy, Capital One and Coca Cola.
