The Makers Fellowship

Cultivating the next generation of tech talent.
Due to overwhelming demand Fellowship spots are currently at capacity. You can sign up for our newsletter here:

We have been inundated with applications for the fellowship programme and have now reached capacity. You can register to keep in touch with us for updates on the programme. Alternatively, you can apply for the main course and find out about the financing options offered by our partners Future Finance.

Fellowship: talent without barriers

We regularly sponsor a limited number of fellowship spots on the course to enable brilliant potential developers fulfil their dreams. We launched the Fellowship programme to remove economic barriers to entry and cultivate the next generation of top tech talent. We believe that everyone deserves a job they love.

Start your career the right way

The fellowship is a pathway to a long-term career as a software developer. You don’t pay to join us and on completion of the course, you will become a Makers employee for 12 months and will work on site with a hiring partner with continued support from our coaches and careers team. Fellowship applicants must demonstrate a technical ability that outshines other candidates — we’re looking to invest in outstanding individuals and a more inclusive tech future.

“There’s been a lot to learn but I’m already impressed that I’m encountering challenges, working to overcome them and moving on to the next area quite quickly. It can be daunting. I like that the Makers ethos is about learning plenty, getting stuck, working out how to get unstuck and then working hard to move forward.”

“The welfare side of Makers helps a lot. You’ve got to be able to handle the stress. Its not like your working as a dev where you’re doing something you know how to do all the time, it’s always something new so its potentially very stressful. A bunch of people came to Makers because of it, because of the holistic approach.”

“It’s a life-changing experience, what it means is a significantly bigger question. Something that I’m still processing. My outlook on life has changed in the sense that I’m surrounded by people who are open to new ideas who are encouraging in their outlook on life.”

It’s a journey. We come here. We don’t know much. We see the Demo Days and these amazing people and think “How can they do this?”, then in three months we’re doing exactly the same.
