Learn best working practices to become a world-class software engineer.

To prepare you for working in a real tech team, our curriculum is centred around learning to code by doing. We focus on Agile best practices like TDD and pair programming to set you up for the modern world of software engineering in the workplace.

Meet Sam Morgan, Head of Education.

Sam talks about our education philosophy at Makers, and what it takes to learn to code to become a successful software engineer. “The modern software engineering environment is a heavily collaborative environment.”

Makers Apprenticeships

Earn £25k from day one. Our apprenticeships are the equivalent of foundation software engineering degrees. We don’t just teach you how to code. We teach you to think like problem-solvers, and give you the coding tools to construct solutions to almost any problem. You don’t need a maths degree, we don’t care about A-levels, you don’t need to have built your first computer before you could walk.
