The Makers Apprenticeship gives you key skills and prepares you for an exciting new career, all whilst earning a highly competitive salary starting between £25,000 to £35,000.

Because finance shouldn’t curtail your calling.

"Makers have been amazing at providing resources and support whenever necessary - my placement coach is always happy to lend a helping hand when working on submitting summative projects, as well as helping keep me accountable when discussing my development goals. This was evident from the moment I joined the bootcamp!" 

"We get a lot of support, Makers are always answering every single question that is asked of them. They are there to help with any problems and there to guide us towards our qualifications." 

"I did the Makers Apprenticeship in 2019 and after more than 3 years I can honestly say that it changed my life. What you learn at Makers on top of basic coding skills is how to approach these problems, break them down and deal with them as best as you can. The coaches were super helpful, they are knowledgeable and they support you to find answers yourself. After working in the industry for over 3 years, I find that I still use the tools I was given at Makers to learn about new tech in my day to day job."

How can I learn about the apprenticeship programme?

An apprenticeship is a real job that provides you with government-funded training, industry-recognised qualifications and a salary from day one. It’s a great way to launch a new career and stay debt free in the process.  At Makers, we offer Level 4 Apprenticeships in Software Engineering, Data Analytics (with Engineering), Cloud (DevOps) Engineering and Quality (Test) Engineering.

An apprenticeship typically lasts between 18–22 months with the majority of apprentices having a permanent role waiting for them at the same company at the end of the programme.

At the end of the apprenticeship, you’ll have an assessment to check you can confidently perform your role. If you pass, you’ll be awarded an industry recognised qualification.

Despite the perception that apprenticeships are for school leavers, there's no upper age limit. Apprenticeships are relevant to anyone wishing to embark on a career in tech especially career switchers.

What is the difference between the Apprenticeship and the Bootcamp course?

Makers Academy Bootcamp Programs:

Makers bootcamp programs offer an intense and focused learning experience designed to propel individuals into the tech industry. The bootcamp is 16 weeks, providing an accelerated journey into the world of technology. Students engage in a hands-on curriculum, delving into coding languages, frameworks, and industry practices.

Apprenticeship Programs:

Apprenticeship programs offer an intensive 4-month learning phase, akin to bootcamps, followed by approximately 18 months on placement within a tech team. During this period, apprentices work within their teams while also completing the necessary coursework for the qualification. 

Apprentices gaining valuable workplace experience and contribute meaningfully to projects. Unlike bootcamp graduates who have flexibility in choosing their workplace, apprentices are employed at a company from the start of the 'bootcamp' phase and throughout the placement phase.
