All WIDJET funding has now been allocated.
For women still interested in becoming a developer with us, we offer interest-free deferred payment via EdAid which you only need to start paying back when you begin working in your first role in tech.
Until February 2020, a 70% discount is available for women who study the Full Stack Track with us on a limited number of places.
This funding scheme has been set up to encourage more women to embark on careers in coding, and is part of the Women into Digital Jobs, Education and Training (WIDJET) skills programme, run by The West of England Combined Authority with funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).
The scheme will offer female students (including those who identify as female) a 70% reduction in course fees on our intensive 16 week training course for aspiring developers. Students do not need to have any previous experience in coding or a background in tech.
This is an amazing opportunity to study a course that has already helped to change many lives (see what past students have to say here).
The course covers the most in-demand skills that tech companies (a growing industry which offers great benefits) are looking for, and teaches the fundamentals of coding for front and back-end, meaning you can work on websites, software, apps and beyond. Graduates hit the workplace with a range of skills tailored to cover the foundations of programming, giving them the flexibility to move in multiple directions with their career.
To date, every one of our graduates has been offered a developer role within 90 days of completing our course – a track record we are very proud of, and plan to continue.
The funding is available on courses beginning July 2019, August 2019, January 2020 and February 2020.
No special application is needed – just apply to study with us in the usual way. If you are accepted onto the course, the reduction will be applied automatically. Limited funded places are available and will be applied on a first come first served basis.
