They provide high-quality training from experts across a wide range of tech topics – from front- and back-end engineering to data science and cyber security – and partnering with companies where associates will thrive.

Unlike traditional tech bootcamps, futureproof’s academy is free for students, meaning applicants are not constrained by personal finances. The diversity of their student base far exceeds the national average: 85% are from lower- or middle-income families, 57% are from minority ethnic backgrounds, and 38% are female. They also have ambitious aims to become the world’s first tech academy to reach 50:50 gender parity in our students.

What is the training academy?

This is a 13-week training academy followed-up with a 2-year commercial placement. You’ll learn how to work in an agile environment, you’ll be taught the how, what and why of code. You’ll learn business skills so you can connect your code to the commercial realities of work.

Full stack web development – you’ll be taught HTML/CSS, JavaScript, React, Python as well as ‘how’ to learn languages to make you adaptable and able to code in any stack.

You will be able to pick between learning in a virtual (100% at home) or hybrid (part in their classroom in Victoria, part at home) environment depending on your location.

After 13 weeks of learning there is potential to land a 2-year placement in technology which futureproof will help you find. Their employment partners include companies like Ford, Babylon Health, Ovo Energy, Capital One and Coca Cola.

You might be a recent graduate or school leaver, or someone with substantial work experience but looking for a career change into the vibrant work of tech.

Your coding experience must be displayed on your CV!

It only takes 30 seconds to register your interest in this training scheme, and we’ll support you throughout the full application process.
