About us

At Makers, we are creating a new generation of tech talent who are skilled and ready for the changing world of work. We are inspired by the idea of discovering and unlocking potential in people for the benefit of 21st century business and society. We believe in alternative ways to learn how to code, how to be ready for work and how to be of value to an organization. At our core, Makers combines tech education with employment possibilities that transform lives.

This intensive four-month program (which includes a month-long PreCourse) sets you up to become a high quality professional software engineer.

We guarantee a job offer being in place within 6 months of graduation as long as you have successfully completed your job hunting activities.

We have the UK’s largest Careers team dedicated to finding you a job after the end of the course, through introducing you to over 250 of London’s top technology companies looking to hire (including but not limited to Deliveroo, British Gas, Starling Bank, Financial Times, Compare The, and Tesco).

Our course has been designed by a team of inspirational software engineers with strong backgrounds in educational psychology, enabling you to master any technology in today's marketplace. We’re big believers in self-directed learning, which means that you finish the course as a confident and independent software engineer ready to hit the ground running.

Community comes first

At the heart of Makers are people. Those who learn with us. Those who work with us. And those who we call our colleagues. Our focus is on empowering and enabling each other and making a difference.

What makes us different?

If you’re thinking of learning to code, it’s important that you know what makes us different from other providers. As we continue to grow, our community celebrates the following ideas.

Never stop learning

We challenge the assumption that you’re supposed to do what you’re told even if it doesn’t make sense. We want everyone in the Makers community to constantly be learning: this idea is at the core of our program.

Love what you do

If you’re not doing what you love, you’re wasting time. Work fills a huge part of our time and it should be something that gives you energy. We don’t just help people to find careers they love – we live that ourselves.

Put people first

We know that the best projects and businesses are built by great teams – not great individuals operating independently of one another. This means learning how to communicate and putting people first.

Question the status quo

The problem with mainstream education is that it doesn’t train people to be ready for the 21st century world of work, where nobody is telling you what to do. New ways of working mean new ways of learning.

Embrace holistic health

Mental health matters and is just as important as physical health. We believe in helping everyone to become their best self and to communicate clearly if something isn’t working for them. We embrace healthy work habits and staying balanced.

Equal access for all

We are making the technology industry more inclusive. Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Github
