Makers Academy (London) - Software Engineering

Makers Academy was one of the first London-native coding Bootcamps. In 2012, they launched their curriculum to help fill the skills gap in London’s growing tech scene. They have since evolved to become a well respected school with several large and impressive hiring partners.

Makers offer two tracks, the Maker Academy 12-week course (similar to most Bootcamps) and a Makers Apprenticeship tracks (by application only). They also offer a job-offer guarantee, which minimizes any risk associated with career change (🙃).
