Not satisfied with your job? Want to go to work and love what you do, day in day out? It’s time for a career change, and coding could be exactly what you’re looking for.
At Makers Academy, we’ve helped everybody from stay-at-home parents and recruiters to scientists and lawyers make their first step towards a career they’re passionate about, in jobs with huge growth opportunities.
The technology sector has been growing rapidly for years, and has been largely unaffected by the recession. With demand for developers growing 20% year-on-year, and supply of developers (mainly graduates of Computer Science degrees), flat lining at 1%, the demand for developers is growing rapidly.
According to Tech Nation, Manchester is the largest tech cluster outside London – with nearly 52,000 employees in the sector. There are 10 tech jobs for every 100 residents, which is pretty awesome when you compare London that has only four jobs for every 100. In short there’s a bigger skills gap in the north so it’s the perfect time to learn to code and start your career as a developer. The tech industry in the north needs you!
The Makers experience was unlike any other. I have learnt to code and carved out a new career for myself alongside some of the most diverse and inspiring people I have ever met.
Makers Academy completely changed the direction I was going in for the expense of 6 months of very hard work.
I have no regret about spending money on Makers Academy. One of the best decisions I've made.
My life has changed dramatically, I have knowledge and skills that I didn't even know existed this time last year.
It enabled me to learn some useful skills and bring me up to date with some cutting edge technologies that are very much sought after in the job marketplace.
It helped me focus, work hard, and learn as much as I could.
If you're willing to work hard, it's more than possible to get a great job with a great salary
