Start your journey to becoming a tech leader at Academy

Your future matters more than your background. We get diverse talent into tech leadership trajectories, regardless of degree. Our cohorts are over 50% female, 30% Black and 60% Black, Asian and ethnically diverse.

Ignite is our 15 week training that gets you tech role ready. We’ll pay you a £3.7k training grant to complete 500 hours of expert-led training in both technical and leadership skills.

Accelerate is our 2 year follow-on that secures your leadership trajectory after you’re hired by a partner tech company. We catalyse your career growth through leadership development training, diverse mentors from our global network, and community events like our Women in Tech series.

Get paid to train

We invest in you. Our expert-led 15-week training would typically cost tens of thousands to trainees – but we pay you a £3.7k training grant, with zero tuition fees.

Earn a tech salary

Find well-rewarded work. Our Partner salaries match and beat average CS graduate salaries, including from Durham, Manchester and Birmingham.

New world, new choices

Choose a different trajectory. Our Scholars have declined or left graduate roles at BCG, Citibank and Deloitte before joining Academy.

Deliver real-world impact

Build something that matters. Get hired into a role that delivers actual results for users, in software engineering, data engineering or product management.

Learn modern technologies

Future-proof your skills. Build a core modern software engineering skillset and specialise further based on the role and employer that you join.

Lead people and teams

Think ahead, get ahead. We put you on a leadership trajectory from Day 1, setting you up to lead Agile team rituals, run external presentations and effectively coach peers.

For mould-breakers and diverse thinkers

A new route to tech leadership

We're building a new generation of tech leaders - with a completely different set of profiles to the status quo.

We go beyond traditional tech backgrounds

You don’t need a computer science degree for a career in tech.

We select for potential over experience in a degree-agnostic process – some of our most high-flying graduates have degrees in History, Philosophy or Economics.

We go beyond traditional tech outcomes

Leaders work with both technology and people.

We invest in your long-term leadership trajectory – focusing on complementary technology and people skills for you to become a builder and leader of products, teams and companies.

We go beyond traditional geographies

Work goes beyond borders and desks.

Our training is remote-first, like the new world of work – so you only need an internet connection and a laptop to participate

Breaking barriers of gender

50% of our graduates are female, and we have a specific Women in Tech space for all female-identifying and gender minority members of the community.

Breaking barriers of ethnicity

60% of our graduates are Black, Asian or ethnically diverse, and 30% identify as Black.

Breaking barriers of class

25% of our graduates were FSM-eligible (Free School Meals), and 20% are the first in their families to go to university.
