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 while providing hiring partners with top technology talent, and helping people change their lives through learning to code. We don’t just speak out about diversity; we walk the talk as well.

In the press

We speak out on challenging the current education system and diversifying the tech industry.

“As London’s leading software development boot camp, Makers Academy students learn how to code in 12 weeks and are set up with all the skills needed to become a developer and secure a job at the end of the course.”

“One of the best things about Makers Academy is the fact that what I’ve learnt is not just restricted to the code; the teaching here is rather holistic in that sense.”

“While some companies have been known to install celebration bells in their office, Makers Academy, a coding bootcamp that aims to turn people into software developers, has gone one step further and installed a giant gong that it rings whenever one of its students gets a job.”

“The Makers fellowship is one of the most accessible ‘higher education’ courses out there, given no formal qualifications are required to apply.”
