Apprenticeships done right.

Our rigorous selection process identifies fearless and Agile learners, whom our course transforms into job-ready developers. We instil professional best practices and provide continual support for 12 months while they adjust to the workplace.

Secure the best talent

Leverage our experience to gain access to the high bar we call “Makers Mindset” – overturning the image of what a traditional apprentice can deliver. Makers selects raw talent with the right attitude and embeds the right habits. 

Diversify your team

Use tech apprenticeships to bring a fresh perspective into your tech team, facilitating greater innovation! Gain access to new channels of recruitment and widen your talent pool through our set of strategic partnerships.

Customise your approach

Tailored to you, in terms of recruitment criteria, course content and more. We’ll take time to understand your culture so that we can match you with the very best candidates and collaborate with you to design a bespoke process.


Empower your managers

The Levy can be confusing, but don’t worry – your dedicated account manager is on hand to guide you through every step of the process. We’ll do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to. 

Frontloaded for impact

3 months of frontloaded training upfront gives apprentices the same intensive, immersive learning experience as those on our successful bootcamp. By the time they start on-site at your offices they’ll be ready to hit the ground running.

Be fully compliant

You’re in safe hands when it comes to compliance thanks to our team of in-house experts. We’re on the Government’s Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers and we’re also regulated by Ofsted.

Customise your approach

Whether you’re re-training existing employees or looking to externally recruit new ones, Makers can help. We know that a career as a successful software engineer starts with a real passion for technology, and we’ve got a proven track record in sparking that drive in people from a diverse range of backgrounds. They just need to be shown what’s possible. 

Upskill existing talent

With the right timeline, we can motivate your employees to progress on their coding journey – giving you a wider pool to select from. Internal attraction is a great opportunity to engage and upskill your workforce.

“The​ ​whole​ ​Makers​ ​experience​ ​was​ ​amazing​ ​and​ ​completely​ ​life​ ​changing.​ ​It​ ​has been​ ​the​ ​best​ ​form​ ​of​ ​education​ ​I​ ​have​ ​ever​ ​been​ ​through.​ The emotional​ ​intelligence​ ​curriculum​ ​at​ ​Makers​ ​also​ ​gave​ ​me​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​self​-​awareness that​ ​I​ ​never​ ​really​ ​had​ ​before​ ​the​ ​course.”

“At Makers, you’re encouraged to be active in your own learning rather than have it passively given to you. To learn a language you need to be immersed in a culture… you can’t just do it three hours a week. You need to really get to grips with it. You need to just get stuck in and not be afraid to get things rolling or to try do things differently.”

Jennifer Shepherd, Financial Times

“There’s been a lot to learn but I’m already impressed that I’m encountering challenges, working to overcome them and moving on to the next area quite quickly. It can be daunting. I like that the Makers ethos is about learning plenty, getting stuck, working out how to get unstuck and then working hard to move forward.”

Chris Harrop, Jigsaw XYZ

“Since Makers, I’m happier. I’ve gained a tangible skill that means I don’t just have a job, I am what I do and I’m proud to do it. I owe a great deal to my fellow Makers Alumni and everyone who supported me through the course. Life-changing is a cliched term but this is a truly transformative course.”

Dania Mah, Freelancer

“Makers provided an incredible 12 weeks that kickstarted me to dig into tech and find its fit with the world of design. It was a personalized experience that builds the developer’s habits of being constantly curious and focused on your learning. It was a crazy roller coaster I thought I wouldn’t get through but Makers teaches you that any situation will always work out no matter how impossible things may seem.”
