Driving Demand in an AI-Fuelled Field

While AI reshapes industries, we see it as an opportunity, not a threat.

Behind every AI innovation is the brilliance of human intellect and the promise of unlocking potential. As AI drives efficiency, the demand for skilled tech professionals surges.

Whether you're a business seeking top-tier talent or an individual aiming to break into tech, our community is your launchpad. At Makers, we don't just adapt to change; we drive it.

Makers Advisory Board

Since 2012, Makers has been at the forefront of advocating for inclusivity and diversity in tech.
Our Advisory Board, a diverse group of industry leaders, amplifies our mission.

They're not just advisors; they're change-makers, committed to reshaping the tech landscape. With their guidance, we're not just dreaming of a more inclusive tech world; we're building it.

Opening Gateways and Unlocking Opportunities

“Diversity is having a seat at the table, inclusion is having a voice, and belonging is having that voice heard.”

True diversity isn't just about representation; it's about creating spaces where everyone feels heard and valued.

While many talk about diversity, we're forging partnerships to make it a reality. Together with our community allies, we're ensuring that every voice finds resonance in the tech world.

What kind of support does the Makers alumni community provide?

The Makers alumni community is inclusive, supportive, and highly active. By joining Makers you’re joining a 3000 strong group of like-minded tech professionals who have taken the same journey into tech as you. As the longest established coding bootcamp in Europe, we have deep roots into the industry, with our alumni now working as senior level tech professionals, returning to Makers to hire. As part of this community, you’ll have support from your first role in tech and throughout your career. There is a buzzing slack channel and regular events for graduates to network, connect and learn together. 

Where can I learn more about the Makers community?

A great way to learn about Makers and our community is to speak to them yourself. We’d love for you to join us, but to get the first hand experience, we invite you to check out their reviews yourself. Course Report, SwitchUp and Rate My Apprenticeship are platforms where our students leave unbiased feedback on our programmes and life as a Maker. 

What soft skills does Makers teach in addition to technical skills?

Makers teaches an emotional intelligence curriculum to build resilience, communication skills, and ability to thrive in the workplace. This includes sessions on resilience training, self-awareness, growth mindset, giving/receiving feedback, self-care, meditation, and more. Makers cares about developing the whole person.

What Do Our Community Members Say?

"Whoever you are, Makers welcomes you. They encourage you to be your true self which I absolutely love"

Alice Wood, Alum 2023

"One thing that really stood out to me about Makers was the emphasis they placed on community building. There are always interesting events and activities going on, daily meditation, weekly yoga, EQ workshops, providing a great opportunity to make friends and collaborate with other students who share similar interests and goals."

Juliana Nocchi Dobal, Alum 2023

"When I was looking at the bootcamps I could apply to, I saw many bootcamps that promise "belonging to a community", but Makers truly provides that. Their approach to learning is so welcoming and unique, I've never experienced anything like this in my life (and I don't think I will again)."
